The program enables Mecklenburg County residents to obtain a copy of a certified birth certificate for individuals born anywhere in the state of North Carolina from 1972 to the present. The Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds is the legally authorized agent of the State Registrar to issue copies of certificates from the Statewide Birth Database maintained by the State Vital Records Office in Raleigh, NC.
“We are pleased to be able to offer this new service to Mecklenburg County residents, and it will allow people in our county to access their birth certificates in a more efficient and cost effective way,” said Register of Deeds David Granberry.
Cost for the service will be $24 to research the certificate in the North Carolina state registry and includes one copy of the certificate. Additional certificates from the same search will be $15 each. For residents born in Mecklenburg County the cost for a certificate remains $10 each.
County residents who would like to take advantage of this service are encouraged to go to the Mecklenburg County Vital Records Office located at 700 East Stonewall Street, Suite 320, in Charlotte. Operating hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information residents can call 704-336-2819.
