Birth Control. Because You Have Other Plans.

Keeping Track of Important Data

Each county in Georgia has a vital records registrar and vital records custodian appointed by the state registrar. Depending upon the county, the vital records registrar or custodian may be located at the county health department or in the office of the probate judge.

Local Public Health Record Custodians

Macon-Bibb County Health Department and Washington County Health Department are both vital records custodians. Vital records for other counties in our district are located at the probate court. Find your local probate court at the Georgia Courts website.

Getting Documents

To get a copy of a birth or death certificate from the vital record custodian, a valid state-issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.) must be presented at the time of the request. A search fee of $25 is required for each certified copy request. Additional copies of the same record can be ordered at the same time for $5 each.
