Birth Records Request

Available information is subject to limitations imposed by the Vital Records Office of the State of Illinois

Birth records are filed by the hospitals generally within 7 to 10 days after the birth occurred.  For home births, please call so that we may forward the current forms that will be necessary to register the birth. We recommend you review the record for accuracy at the earliest opportunity.  After one year even “minor” corrections become more complicated.  For information about corrections.
