The Statewide Birth Record Database offers Ohioans the ability to obtain certified birth certificates at local health departments across the state. Local registrar offices throughout the state have access to issue an Ohio Birth record regardless of the county where the birth occurred in Ohio. Prior to this improvement, a person would need to purchase a copy from the county where the birth occurred or from the state office of vital statistics.
