Issuing of Birth and Death Certificates
Records on file from December 20, 1908 to the present.
The office of Vital Statistics is responsible for the coding and archiving of Birth and Death Certificates for Miami County. With our new state-wide issuance approval, we can now provide birth certificates for anyone born in the state of Ohio regardless of original county of birth. We are excited about state-wide issuance because it provides a better service to you and your neighbors.
When a Birth or Death certificate is received in our office, it is assigned a number and is completed and registered with the State Vital Statistics office.
