Birth & Death Records

Who Can Order Certificates

Important note: As of January 1, 2021, a new vital records law and rules (PDF) went into effect that change the ordering requirements for birth and death certificates.

  • For increased security of personal information, only individuals with specific relationships to the person on the record being requested can receive a certificate.
  • Identity and proof of relationship documentation will be required.
  • Certificate fee increased to $25 per copy.
