makes finding birth records easy
if you are doing a large-scale family research project,
BirthRecordsLocator.com will save you TONS of time!
I built this website because I found the government websites to be difficult to use. I wanted a simple site where I could find…
- Maps, location, and contact info for state & county Vital Records offices
- Find out which years they have birth records for
- Which historical societies (if any) have older records
Most of the government sites do not list all the relevant information on a single page. The result is having to click way too many links just find the contact information (and maps) for all the vital records offices across the United States.
To find the correct office for your city or town, simply click a state link on the right side of this page and then click the link for the county office you are looking for. You are 2 clicks away from any vital records office in the entire USA!
What exactly are Birth Records?
A birth record, otherwise known as a birth certificate, is a type of vital record which documents the birth of a baby. A birth record includes:
- The Full Name of the individual
- The Date of Birth
- The Gender
- The State & Town in which the individual was born
- The identity of the mother & father
Sample Birth Certificate
Need an Official Birth Certificate?
Are you trying to get a passport or other government issued document that requires you present a official birth certificate?
You can contact the vital records office in the county in which you were born. Many have walk-in services.
Or you can request a birth certificate replacement online.
In most states, only the immediate family members are eligible to request the official birth certificate of an individual. Everyone else, including genealogists and those researching their family histories, can access the online index by using the form at the top of this page.
