Ohio birth certificates 01.12.2011

Fulton County Health Department now has the ability to issue Ohio birth records regardless of the county where the birth occurred.

The local registrar office received its certification Dec. 9 and began issuing certified copies of statewide birth records the next day. This provides an improvement in service for individuals who live in Fulton County and were born in another county of the state. Prior to this, a person would need to purchase a copy from the county where the birth occurred or from the state office of vital statistics.

For more information, call the health department at 419/337-0915.
