Do you need a Birth Certificate or Death Record?​

There are multiple ways to obtain these documents:

By phone:  You can phone in a request at 1-800-241-8322, option 1. To use the call in feature you must have a valid major credit card. There will be a credit card surcharge fee in addition to the cost of the certificates requested. Average turn around for a phone order is four to five days plus mail time.
