BIRTH CERTIFICATES
   

Do you need a copy of your birth certificate?
We can supply copies of birth records from almost all the States of the US*. Prices start at ONLY $24.95!** Click Here to Order!

What are Birth Certificates used for? U.S. citizens can use an original copy of their Birth Certificate for cross-border travel to Mexico and Canada; as required documentation for a drivers license or passport application; or simply to replace a Birth Certificate that has been lost.
     
What is a Birth Certificate? It is documentary proof of a legal birth in the United States and the commonwealth states
*** of the US. Our Birth Certificates are state issued, and are appropriate for legal matters. Some states have raised seals, some have stamped seals. We provide what the state has to offer. Additionally, some states have both certified and non certified copies. If you must have a certain type, please put notes in the comments field that comes up in our automated ordering system. Our researchers will place the request with these additional comments.
         
More information about each state can be found in the Birth Certificate state pages listed below, or call us at 1-800-315-7678 (or 303-455-8855 if outside the US).
     
Note: Many states require that you provide us with proper identification so that we can avoid identity fraud and identity theft. When completing the online ordering forms please make special note IF you are asked at any point to fax us a copy of your driving license. If this is required for a particular state then this will be noted during the ordering process, and also at the end when the order is reviewed and a receipt is generated. If you do not fax us a copy of your license when it is required then your order will be delayed while we wait a suitable period of time for it to arrive. If it does not arrive then one of our researchers will call and contact you. This will mean that your order will take at least two days longer to process.
    
RESEARCHERS - In almost all the states we are able to go directly to the source, and our researchers obtain original and certified copies of these public records from the state, county parish or borough records offices and court houses where they are stored. Note: Certain documents such as California birth records can take several weeks to be processed and mailed. Genealogical requests, especially, that often have to be recovered from historical or archived public records. It depends on the state being searched. Click on the states below for more information, or go to our "State by State" information page.
     
ACCURATE INFORMATION - In order for us to process your order, we must comply with vital records regulations. In the event that the information you provide to us, does not exactly match the information on the record, there may be a delay. Make sure that you provide us with correct and complete information, because the accuracy of our results, and speed of the service that we can provide depends on the information that you provide us. Make sure that you provide us with all the details that you can about the persons listed on the certificate or record. For example, for a marriage certificate record, provide the name of the bride and groom, where the marriage license was issued, the date and location of the marriage ceremony. Our services are to provide the search, and although we make every effort to provide you with the results that you are looking for, we cannot guarantee the results if the information provided is incomplete or inaccurate.
               
PLEASE NOTE - We charge a fee for each LOCATION that we search. A search request that comes back as "no record found" will not be credited back UNLESS it is clearly our mistake that the wrong location was searched. If we have made the error then your money will be cheerfully refunded with our apologies.

TURNAROUND TIME - In the event that additional documentation is needed to place your order, for example a driver's license or signed release or notarized signature or documentation showing legal authority or proof of relationship, we cannot process your order until we have receive this information. (Not all of these are needed for every order and the document needed for each order is displayed when you place the order.) Our turnaround times are based on the date that the order is processed, not the date that you enter your request into our system. Please send the necessary documents at the same time you enter your information to avoid delays. It can take longer for genealogical requests that may have to be recovered from historical or archived records.
            
Note: We expedite all orders, and process your birth certificate request as soon as all the required documentation has been received. The majority of the states process orders within 7-10 business days, BUT we have no control on the exact turnaround time, which varies from state to state, and can vary according to the number of orders that they are currently processing.
               
RUSH ORDERS - If you are in a hurry and need to have your order rushed, call us at 1.800.315.7678 and let us make sure that we can meet YOUR deadline. We are able to fulfill rush orders using an express carrier such as FedEx, but rush orders can ONLY be delivered to a street address, not to a PO Box or military address. Please see the online order form for any special restrictions that may exist for the state or county that you are interested. Please telephone or email us for rush orders as we will have to check availability with the researcher who is located in that state.
