Electronic Death Registration System
State of Michigan's Electronic Death Registry System (EDRS) allows for the electronic submission and acceptance of death records
from funeral homes, medical examiners and physicians.
you have not yet filed a death record through EDRS, you will need to
sign up to use the system and obtain a fingerprint scanner, which is
required to sign in to this system. The steps to become an EDRS user and
the fingerprint scanners are available (at no charge) from the Division
for Vital Records and Health Statistics in Lansing. Please contact them
directly by phone at 517-373-6579 or by email to the State of Michigan.
