The Federal government does not maintain copies of birth records of 
persons born in the United States or its Territories.  The State or 
Territory where the birth occurred maintains the record.  See "Office of 
Vital Statistics Addresses" for each State and Territory and the fees 
for certified copies of birth certificates.  THE LISTED FEES ARE SUBJECT 
TO CHANGE.  For your convenience we have included telephone numbers for 
each office.  You should contact the appropriate office for current fee

birth certificates.  You may use the form below to request your birth 
certificate.  DO NOT MAIL TO PASSPORT SERVICES.  Please note that some 
States, prior to release, may require the signiture of the subject of 
the birth record or the parent or guardian if the subject is under 18
