Due to the public health state of emergency surrounding COVID-19, we have suspended Vital Records walk-in services at the State Office of Vital Records until further notice. 

 

We are continuing to process certified copy requests, changes and corrections via mail.  You also may request certified copies of vital records online using our approved third party vendor VitalChek or visit your local county office for birth and death records.  It is strongly recommended that you call first, before visiting your county office.
