Birth & Death Records

As a Local Issuance Office, our office protects and issues certified copies of birth and death records. It is no longer necessary to go to the registrar's office of the county where the birth or death took place. You may go to a registrar's office in any county in Minnesota for births that took place during or after 1900 and for deaths that took place during or after 1997.

For additional information visit the Minnesota Department of Health website.


Fees for certified copies:

First certificate for each birth record ordered: $26.00
Additional certificates for the same record ordered at the same time $19.00

First certificate for each death record ordered $13.00
Additional certificates for the same record ordered at the same time $6.00

Return Check Charge $30.00

If you were not born in Minnesota, see the National Center For Health Statistics for more information about ordering a birth certificate from another state.
