Birth Certificates by State  


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: We currently can obtain birth records from the state of New Jersey.  The state will only provide certificates to direct descendants or family members (see the notes below).  Please Click HERE for current pricing.

The regular turnaround time for birth certificates for the state of New Jersey is usually on the order of 6 - 8 weeks, BUT at the moment the vital records office is unusually backlogged and turnaround times have extended to about THREE MONTHS. Please understand that this situation is beyond our control and that we cannot accept any rush orders for New Jersey Death (or Birth) Certificates. We hope that this situation will improve over time and apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause our clients.

NOTE: Per New Jersey Governor's Executive Order #18 (more), you must submit identification and state your relationship to the individual named on the vital record you are requesting. Please view the link below on the Executive Order for important information on who may obtain a certified copy of a vital record. Click HERE to see the text of the governor's order.
Record Years Available - records are available from June 1878 to present. Genealogy requests for records prior to 1878 may be available, however application must be made in writing and they have to be recovered from archive which means that the turnaround time may be significantly longer.
