About Birth Records Search

What Are Birth Records?

Birth Records are documents relating to an individual's birth. These can include birth certificates, birth indexes, and birth databases. Some states may also have paternity registries and affidavits of parentage for children born to single parents. Birth Records are kept by Vital Records Offices or Clerk's Offices, which may be run by the state or at the local level.

A birth certificate lists the baby's name, date of birth, location of birth, and the names of both parents. Some birth certificates also include the time of birth and the delivering doctor. A birth index stores records of births in the state, typically listing the individual's full name, date of birth, gender, county of birth, and sometimes the mother's maiden name. A birth database includes data on local births, often categorized by year, demographic categories, and health categories. Birth databases do not include personally identifying information.

Birth Records are required to access various government services. Certified birth certificates are required to order official passports, marriage certificates, and Social Security numbers. They may also be necessary to prove citizenship in order to receive veteran's benefits or other government services.

Birth Records are important sources for genealogical research. Some locations in the United States have birth certificates that date back to 1630. Birth databases can also be used to analyze health outcomes for infants and mothers, delivery methods, and other information useful for public health purposes.

In some states, Birth Records are public records. These are known as "open record" states. Other states restrict access to birth certificates, which can only be requested by the individual named in the birth record, the parents listed in the record, or the legal guardian or legal representative of the child. Birth records commonly become public documents after a waiting period, which may be more than 100 years.
