The Wisconsin Pre-1907 Birth, Death and Marriage Index is available on microfiche at Wisconsin State Historical Society. Madison and their Area Research Centers, the LDS Family History Center and possibly even your local library. This index is also available online at Ancestry and LDS Family History Library.

Wisconsin Death Index 1959-1979 This is an online searchable microfiche index. The site includes directions on how to search this index..

RESEARCH TIP: While searching for vital records remember that Vilas County was not formed until 1893. What we know today as Vilas county was part of Portage County until 1850;   Marathon County from 1850 to 1874; Lincoln County from 1874 to 1885. And Oneida County from 1885 to 1893. You may need to also search in these other counties.

Birth Death and Marriage Certificates can be purchased from the Vilas County Register of Deeds or the Wisconsin Dept . Birth certificates are presently $12 each and death or marriage certificates are $7 Counties were not required to send copies of all vital records to the state until October 1907 so the most complete set of vital records will be found at the Register of Deeds office, not the state office.
