Before a certificate can be shipped, you'll need to provide valid proof of identification.  See our Frequently Asked Questions for details. Please direct any additional questions to the State Office of Vital Records at 404.679.4702 or ROVER@dhr.state.ga.us.

The quick and easy online process eliminates the need to mail a request or make a trip to a government office for birth and death records.  The service is provided by the Georgia Technology Authority in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Public Health.

ROVER offers a certified copy of a birth or death certificate for a $25 search fee plus an $8 processing fee. These fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.  Each additional copy of the same certificate ordered at the same time is $5.
