Mail Orders

If mailing the request, please do not send the original ID with your application. Please send a photocopy. For a complete listing of acceptable forms of identification (ID) click here.


The fee for the search of a birth or death record is $15. This fee will pay for the issuance of one certified copy of the certificate to the qualified applicant if the certificate is located. Additional copies will be issued at a cost of $15 per copy. The searching fee is not refundable or transferable. Please make your check or money order payable to OSDH. Heirloom birth certificates are available for a fee of $35. Corrections or additions to vital records require additional fees and required documentation. Credit and debit cards are not accepted. Cash, check or money order only. ATM available on-site.


Effective Nov. 1, 2016, all non-sealed records of births that occurred more than 125 years from the current date will be open record, as will all records of deaths occurring more than 50 years prior to the current date. No proof of eligibility will be required for those records. An application, photo ID and fees will still be required.


OK2Explore is a free searchable public index of births and deaths that occurred in the state of Oklahoma. It includes information from records of births occurring in Oklahoma 20 or more years ago and records of deaths occurring in Oklahoma five or more years ago. You can search by type of event (birth or death), date, county, name and sex. The database includes information to help you identify whether a record is on file without paying a search fee. The index will indicate whether or not a record exists, but you cannot view the actual birth or death certificate online. If you would like to order a copy of a record, the eligibility rules will apply for non-open records.
