OBTAINING DOCUMENTS



last updated October 12, 2003


Most everyone in genealogy research is familiar with ways to get certified copies of birth, death, and marriage records. Well, I'm going to provide you some of the ways I have learned how you can get non-certified copies of some of those documents you really don't need official copies of. And below I'll put a few links to those cites that tell you how to get those certified copies you sometime need.

How to obtain non-certified copies from Ohio

A source informed me that effective July 1, 2003 the State of Ohio is no longer permitted to release uncertified copies of birth and death certificates.  I haven't checked with these sources, yet, to see if they have discontinued issuing non-certified documents.
