Birth Records in Indiana
 
The Indiana State Department of Health maintains birth records for births occurring in Indiana from October 1907 to the present. For births that occurred before October 1907 you must search in the local health department in the county where the birth occurred.
 
When requesting a certified copy of an Indiana birth record, you must show proper identification. You may apply for a certified copy of a birth certificate in person, by mail, by fax or online.
 
You must be eligible to receive a copy and proof of your identity is required. In order to be eligible you must be:

  • The person named on the record and over 18 years of age.
     
  • The person named on the record who is under eighteen must provide signature, ID and the phone number of his or her parent or legal guardian.
     
  • Mother or father of the person named on the record. The father must be named on the certificate and either married to the mother or have his paternity established.
     
  • Grandparents, aunts, and uncles of the person named on the record but only if the parents of the person were married at the time of the birth.
