ATTENTION: Due to the new availability of death certificates from 1954-1963, the Archives Library expects an unusually high volume of orders and patrons using our library terminals. Time on the computer terminals will be limited to 15 minutes when there are no empty ones available for other patrons to use. Order processing and shipping times will be slowed during the initial rush. We thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
The Select Ohio Public Records Index includes the following:
You can purchase uncertified photocopies of Ohio death certificates online. Use the Index to find and select your certificates, save them to your list and click on purchase to checkout through the Ohio History Store. Copies cost $7 per certificate (Ohio residents pay 7.5% sales tax).
You can request copies of death certificates from December 20, 1908 to 1953 that don't show up in our online Select Ohio Public Records Index by completing an online request form and checking out through the Ohio History Store. Stillborn death certificates are only available from December 20, 1908 to 1935 and from 1942 to 1949.
Copies of death certificates from the years 1954 to 1963 will be delivered by email with the document attached as an image file. All other Select Ohio Public Records copies will be shipped by postal mail.
