Birth Certificate Records Are Public Records

Birth certificate records are the official government public records and documentation of birth printed on security paper. In order for a birth certificate to be official, it must have the embossed seal. There may be a copy provided after birth at the hospital, but it is different in that it could also have the footprints of the baby, but it is in no way a valid document for legal purposes. An official copy of a birth certificate record can be obtained from your state’s Department of Health. They are all independently operated by each state and are in charge of archiving and indexing pubic vital records such as birth records, death records and marriage records.

Official Birth Certificate Records

Official birth certificates and other vital records can be received only from where they were filed originally. If the birth certificate is needed for official business, then you will need to obtain the certified or official birth certificate, which includes the raised seal.

  • Full Name (first, last, and middle)
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Date and birthplace
  • Names of parents, ages, and birthplaces
  • Physician or midwife name and address

  4. I need to know how to get a delayed birth certificate in Alabama.My father is deceased and never had a birth certificate.I sent for one but vital statistics in Alabama said he doesn’t have one.What documentation do I need?

    1. Hello Lavinia,

      The usual route would be to contact vital statistics in Alabama as you stated that you did. An online site that you can try is VitalChek. However, it sounds like you have likely already looked into this as well. If your father was never issued a birth certificate then I would suggest contacting the county in which he was born, and the hospital in which he was born in order to locate any possible records that may exist.
