Searching for Records?

We have a limited number of records available. The majority of these have been transcribed and posted in the appropriate links on this website. If you would like physical copies of records, we can guide you on the process of obtaining those records. Please remember that not all records are available. KHI has no control over the availability of records.

As of 2019, we will not have access to death records after the year 1960. That means if the patient or inmate died in one of Kentucky’s state hospitals or institutions AFTER 1960, we will not be able to access any vital statistics. The good news is that we can provide you with information on how to obtain these records from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This is contingent upon record availability which we have no control over.

We also ask that you provide us with as much information as possible; this would include first and last names, dates and locations of birth and death, last known location, and any other information you might have available. Please avoid sending social security numbers of anyone living or deceased.
