Vital Records

The City Clerk issues certified copies of births, deaths, marriages, and divorce certificates to qualified individuals and agencies that provide a "direct and tangible" interest in obtaining a record.

In order to obtain certified copies of Vital Records, you must complete an application and pay a search fee. The current fee is $15.00. This fee is payable whether or not a record is found. Additional copies of the same record issued at the same time are $10.00.

Effective January 1, 2005 all individuals requesting a certified copy of a record (Pursuant to RSA 5 C-9) must present positive identification, including, but not limited to, a driver’s license, passport or other picture identification, or in the absence of acceptable picture identification shall complete the form "Documentation Evidence for Individuals Not Possessing An Acceptable Picture Identification."
