  • how old is your dd. I didnt get my dd until she was about 6 weeks and the hospital sent ours in. It all depends.

  • look up your local health department look for the vital statics department they are usually the ones that deal with birth and death certificates . at least that is what is was in OKC my grandmother works from them ,
    i didnt even get my sons til he was almost 2 months .

  • I had to order mine separately. Thre should be a website with order info. It's not too expensive so I went ahead and got two.

  • go to your county court house and ask for birth/death records, I think its the cuircut clerk. You pay a fee for them so get copies for future use.
