The Registrar of Vital Statistics Office is responsible for the filing of all births and deaths that occur within the City of Rome. Vital Records are maintained according to the requirements with certified copies of the certificates associated with these events.
Non-certified copies of older certificates are available for genealogical research. For persons doing family histories, our office has records on file dating from the year 1882. These records are stamped “for genealogical purposes only“.
If you need a record of birth or death and no longer live in the area, these records can be easily obtained through the mail. To request any of these items, please download the requirements and the appropriate application form below.
