Birth and Death Records:
Greene County kept birth and death records between 1893 and 1915. The state of Pennsylvania began to file births and deaths at a state level in 1906. Between 1906 and 1915, you may find records at both county and state levels. These records may compliment or contradict one another depending on the person providing the data. For the most thorough results, checking both of these certificates is recommended. After 1915, borth and death records are at the state level only. State level records are maintained at the Division of Vital Records
