Before 1899, some cities enacted city ordinances requiring the recording of vital events and provided their own system for vital statistics. The City of Key West has the oldest known records, dating back to 1865. A law was enacted in 1927 providing for the centralization of marriage and divorce records. Currently, the Office of Vital Statistics maintains approximately 21.5 million vital records.
