Oklahoma Public Records

Restricted records include records protected by a state evidentiary privilege, personal information within driver records, information in the files of the Board of Medicolegal Investigations, and personnel records where disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.

Oklahoma state databases are listed on this page in alphabetical order.  You can reorganize them by Popularity by clicking on that feature.  This list contains the more useful statewide databases.  For additional resources, use the tools in the side margin.  Especially helpful are the menus for county records and categories of records (deeds, property, recorded documents, etc.).

  • Court System - The Oklahoma court system has four levels. At the first level are Municipal Courts, which handle violations of city ordinances. Second are the District Courts, which handle most civil and criminal cases. The second level has two special courts: the Workers Compensation Court that hears worker compensation claims; and the Court on Tax Review that hears cases involving illegal tax levies. At the third level is Court of Civil Appeals and the Court of Criminal Appeals. Both handle appealed cases from lower courts as directed by the Supreme Court. Criminal appeals can go no higher than the Court of Criminal Appeals. At the fourth and highest level is the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which reviews civil cases from lower courts.  Oklahoma Court Records
  • Criminal Records - Infractions and city code violations are handled by the Municipal Courts. Misdemeanors and felonies are handled by the District Courts. Criminal cases on appeal from the District Court are heard in the Court of Criminal Appeals, the highest criminal court in the state.  To search the criminal databases, and learn more about how the records are organized, go to our Oklahoma Criminal Records page.
  • Vital Records - Birth & death certificates are provided by: Oklahoma Vital Records Service, Oklahoma State Dept of Health, 1000 Northeast Tenth, Room 117, Oklahoma City, OK 73117, (405) 271-4040. Birth records are restricted to parents and the person named on the certificate. Marriage & divorce certificates are available from the Clerk of Court in the county where the event occurred.  Visit our Vital Records page to find the Social Security Death Index for Oklahoma, death & cemetery databases from available cities & counties; historical marriages from a few counties and tribal nations, along with information for ordering records from each county. Unfortunately, we have not discovered any online databases for researching birth or divorce records in Oklahoma. To order copies of those records, see our Vital Records page.
