Request a Copy of a Vital Record Online

How do I request a record online?
Visit one of the following websites to submit your request online:
If you are not eligible to receive an authorized copy, you may receive an Informational Certified Copy of your record. Informational Certified Copies are printed with a legend on the face of the document that states, "INFORMATIONAL, NOT A VALID DOCUMENT TO ESTABLISH IDENTITY."
For more information on Authorized vs. Informational Copies, visit the Vital Records webpage Authorized Copy vs. Informational Copy.
**Please note that the California Department of Public Health-Vital Records (CDPH-VR) does not accept online orders. Customers wishing to use online request services must do so using one of the third parties listed above.
