Re: obtaining birth certificates #general

Does anyone know how to obtain a certified copy of a birth certificateFor a search prior to 1910, seefrom New York City more quickly if you live out of state? There's notelephone number to call (only an automated line) and they don't respond
For a search after 1909, see
My experience is that if you mail a request, along with your check and you
provide the certificate number, you will receive the certificate within 2 to
3 weeks. I am out of state and that has proved to be irrelevant.
If you do not provide the certificate number, add a week or two to the time,
assuming you know the date of birth.
