Birth Certificates

The Seneca County General Health District can now provide certified copies of birth certificates for any person born in the State of Ohio from 1908 to the present, regardless of the county of birth. This allows you to get your birth certificate without the inconvenience of traveling to your birth county or applying by mail. Birth records prior to 1908 must be obtained at the Seneca County Probate Court, located at 103 E. Market St, Suite 301, Tiffin, Ohio.

Certificate Fees

Certified birth certificates are $25 per copy. We accept cash, check, debit/credit card or money order.  Debit/credit card purchases require an additional processing fee. Due to changes in state law, we can not provide uncertified copies of birth certificates.
