Nassau County Vitals

Death records 
The collection of Vital Records begin in 1881, and are required 
to be kept by the city or town, in which the event (birth, death, marriage) 
occurred and by the state (Albany).  
There are 2 cities and 3 towns in Nassau County and 10 towns in Suffolk County.

It is very important to know in which city or town the 
event took place.
The city or town could be different from the city or town where the 
individual may have resided.

On and after January 1, 1899, the eastern two-thirds of 
Queens County became Nassau County, 
and at that time included 3 Towns:  North Hempstead, 
Hempstead and Oyster Bay.  
In 1910, Glen Cove incorporated as a city and was made 
independent of the Town of Oyster Bay.  
In 1922, the Village of Long Beach (incorporated in 1918)
was incorporated as a city and made independent of the 
Town of Hempstead.
