Vital Records – Vitally Important Information

“Can you send me a copy of my birth certificate?” 

“Where can I get a copy of my marriage license?”

These are simple questions, but depending on the nature of your organization and the types of inquiries you handle, they may not be as simple to answer.  Enter the National Center for Health Statistics!  NCHS has put together an online directory of the state agencies that can supply certified and/or official copies of vital records: birth certificates, death certificates, marriage licenses, and divorce notices.  Fees are noted where applicable and complete addresses and phone numbers are supplied for initiating requests.
