New Jersey Birth Records

Public birth records, vital birth records, county birth records and birth certificates are all synonyms for a documentation used by the United States government. The birth records are used to note an individual date of birth. In most cases, the vital birth records are submitted by the hospitals. Currently, county birth records are filed with the local registrar in the county where the birth occurred and are filed electronically. The Birth record can only be claimed by the following: The individual himself or herself, the parents of the registrant, any child of the registrant, Legal guardian of the registrant, an n m legal, representative of the registrant or an heir of the registrant. Nowadays we can get copies of birth certificates through the Internet. In New Jersey, birth records are kept in two separate places. Records prior to 1901 are kept by the New Jersey State Archives, are open to the public and go as far back as 1848. Later birth records are available through the State Bureau of Vital Statistics and Registration and are considered to be confidential and may not be ordered by non-family members.
