Can I get a copy of a birth certificate?
The Recorder’s Office can make certified copies of most Minnesota births. A requester can apply for a certified copy of their own record or their child's, their parent's, their grandchild's or grandparent’s record by filling out a birth application form and showing a government issued picture ID. A requester can also obtain a certified birth record under certain other legal circumstances. Call the Recorder’s Office at 218-299-5031 to determine if they have the record available.

Check Vital Records Services at the U.S. Department of State for information on where to call or write for vital records in other states.
