What Does a Birth Records Report Include?

With information sourced from thousands of state, county, and municipal sources, a birth records search report reveals information like father's name, mother's name, sibling names, date of birth, place of birth, filing county, and other related public records available.

Birth Records

Birth records comprise obtainable official information on an individual's birth. Searching for birth records online is the easiest alternative to access vital records data when you don't have an actual copy of the birth certificate.

Birth Information

A birth records report discloses the basic data linked to someone’s birth, starting with the person’s full name, date and place of birth, gender, and ending with the names of both parents.

Contact Details

Access contact information for your chosen search subject. This may include current and previous residence, phone number(s), email address (personal, business), social profiles, and more.

Family Information

Further contact information or the current address of anyone’s relatives or immediate family members, siblings, parents, or spouses, might instantly be disclosed by our public records lookup tool.

Personal Records

When conducting a personal records search, further data extracted from public documents could be added to the search report, with phone numbers, address history, education records, occupation, relatives and associates, nicknames/aliases, and even marital status.

What are Birth Records?

Although data related to births (mostly births or baptism/christenings dates) started to be logged in local church registers in England as early as the 16th century, the first standard certificates attesting live births were developed in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. The 1902 Act of Congress named the Bureau of Census as a permanent agency to implement a standard birth registration system. By 1919, all states had already been using birth records and by the late 1930s, a standardized version was commonly adopted.

As of 2000, the Department of Health and Human Services listed more than 6,000 entities legally allowed to issue birth certificates. The official, certified birth certificates, which are generally not available online, must include a registrar's embossed, raised, multicolored or impressed seal, their signature, and the filing date with the Public Health's registrar's office. Apart from this, there are other types of birth certificates, such as:

  • Short-form birth certificates Also known as abstract certificates - used mainly in Texas and California without an embossed seal.
  • Souvenir birth certificates Issued by most US hospitals, yet holding limited legal value.
  • Adoptive birth certificates A replacement birth certificate issued to substitute the original one which is normally sealed when the adoption is finalized.
  • Certificate of foreign birth Documenting evidence of overseas-born adoptees with American adoptive parents.

Birth records are among the vital records that constitute a primary source of information about someone’s family. With Infotracer's instant birth records search, the place of birth, full date of birth, parents information, family members, or contact information are a just a few details that could come up within seconds in our online report.

Common Questions About Birth Records

How To Find Birth Records?

Birth files are kept at county level, so if you know when and where the person was born, just check the local Department of State Health Services Vital Statistics Unit’s website. Otherwise, you can search birth records through Infotracer, ancestry or census records’ websites.

How To Find Birth Records For Free Online?

If you visit any National Archives facility, you can search the federal census records online, for free. A quicker, more straightforward alternative would be to look them up on Infotracer.

How Long Do Hospitals Keep Birth Records?

In the United States, hospitals are required to store birth records as long as any other medical records, for at least seven years and no more than ten years.

Who Can Get A Copy Of A Birth Certificate?

Due to its confidentiality, a copy of a birth certificate is only available to the respective parents and child. A legal representative, a legal guardian or an heir of the person named on the certificate could also get a copy by submitting a few proofing documents.

Are Birth Records Public Information?

Anyone can access birth records at the governmental authority located in the jurisdiction where the birth took place if the parents are married at the time of birth. Birth records are public information for 100 years after the date of the event.

Can You Look Up Someone's Birth Certificate?

Head to state government sites or Vitalchek.com to run a quick search among millions of vital records and access birth certificates fast and easy. Not all states grant online viewing rights though. Also, the access is often restricted to the persons named in the certificate (parents and child).
