Birth Certificate Request Letter Basics

This letter is used to request a copy of a birth certificate from a state's vital statistics office. By answering a few simple questions, a properly formatted letter will be generated with the correct address where you will send your request.

Note: We are not affiliated with any of the United States Vital Statistics Records Offices, thus we cannot actually provide you with an actual copy of your birth Certificate. You will need to send the request letter to the appropriate office located here once completed.
