CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY OF RECORDS

Birth and death certificates contain highly confidential information about the persons to whom they relate. The local registrar is required to maintain the highest level of vital records security to protect the privacy of those individuals.

Birth certificates, death certificates and the indexes related to birth and death certificates are not subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) and are NOT open to public inspection. Access to vital records maintained by local registrars is subject to Public Health Law 4173 and 4174 and the Health Commissioner’s Administrative Rules and Regulations.

For copies of marriage licenses issued anywhere in New York State except New York City, a certified copy of the marriage records may be obtained from the office of the town or city clerk who issued the license, or from the New York State Department of Health. The fee is $10 if you obtain a certified copy from the town or city clerk who issued the license.

Vital records registration started in New York State outside of New York City in 1881. Generally, the New York State Department of Health provides uncertified copies of the following types of records for genealogy research purposes:

 

 


 

  • Birth certificates - if on file for at least 75 years and the person whose name is on the birth certificate is known to be deceased.
     
  • Death certificates - if on file for at least 50 years.
     
  • Marriage certificates - if on file for at least 50 years and both spouses are known to be deceased.

Are the time periods ever waived?

The time periods are waived for direct-line descendants. A direct line descendant is a person in the direct line of descent, i.e., the child, grandchild, great grandchild of the person whose record is requested. The direct-line descendant applicant must provide the following:

  • Proof of their relationship to the person whose record they are requesting.
  • Proof of the death of the person whose birth certificate they are requesting.
  • Proof of the death of both spouses whose marriage certificate they are requesting.
