  • Before you go anywhere it would be good to check online or call. Each state may be different.

  • If you don't need them right away I'd just go online and order them.  Go to the website of whatever county they were born in.  They will tell you how to get them.

    It cost me $10 for the one and $7 for the others when I needed to order them online (depending on the county).  They came in a week or two.

  • In Texas, you can order them online and have them mailed to you. Google "vital records" for whatever state holds the birth certificate.
