Important Note: 

Starting January 1, 2021, a new vital records law and rules go into effect that changes 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 certified copy.

  • Identity and proof of relationship documentation will be required. Exact documentation is still to be determined.

  • Certificate fee will increase to $25.00 per copy.
