Birth Records in
Jefferson County, Alabama

Birth records from 1908-2017 are available at the Jefferson County Health Department for people who were born in Jefferson County, Alabama.

The Jefferson County Health Department provides certified birth records, marriage records, divorce records, and death records for a fee of $15. An official birth certificate is required to get a passport and drivers license.

Birth certificates are only available to the individual on the certificate and their immediate family members until they are 125 years old, which is the year 1892. Birth records before 1892 are now public.
