Virginia 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. The Division of Vital Records in Virginia has birth records that date back to 1853. Interestingly, though, the Division of Vital Records doesn't have records from 1896 to June 1914. However, aside from this gap in coverage, records can be requested from most of the last 150 years.
