Birth and Death Records

 Vital Statistics

The Monroe County Health Department Vital Statistics offers Birth and Death records from 1909 to date. We now offer central issuance. If you were born in Ohio, we can issue you a certified birth record. Previously you were required to purchase your record from the county in which you were born.  Death records are only available from the counties in which the death took place.

Please contact our office to ensure the record is on file. 740-472-1677 ext. 2
