Rhode Island 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. Rhode Island birth records are maintained by the Office of Vital Records, which is part of the Rhode Island Department of Health. This agency maintains birth records for 100 years after the event occurred.
