The York County Archives has birth and death records from 1852 to 1855 and 1893 to 1906. For records after 1906, please contact the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Prior to 1906, Pennsylvania only kept birth and death records for the years we list. Government birth and death records never existed for any other time periods. Church records or family files found at The York County Heritage Trust are the best alternatives.
