Birth and Death Certificates

Clinton County Health District can now issue birth certificates for anyone born in the State of Ohio.  Available records are 1908 to present.  This change does not apply to death certificates in which case the county where the death occurred will have to be contacted.

Ohio is an “open state” which means vital records (both births and deaths) are considered public documents by the State of Ohio.  This means that anyone who can submit the basic facts of a certificate may request a certified copy.  Birth and death records are recorded in the county in which the event occurs regardless of the person’s residence.

In Person

Vital Statistics Office Hours are Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. excluding holidays.
