May 28, 2012
Pile of birth certificates.

The Georgia Technology Authority and Georgia Department of Public Health have created a new online service that lets you order Georgia birth and death certificates online.

Request Official Vital Events Records(ROVER) offers a certified copy of a birth or death certificate for a $25 search fee plus an $8 processing fee. Each additional copy of the same certificate ordered at the same time is $5.

Birth certificates can be ordered by the person whose name appears on the birth certificate as the registrant, parents, grandparents, adult children, adult siblings, and legal guardians. Death certificates can be ordered by the spouse, adult children, adult siblings, parents, grandparents, grandchildren, and those with a “tangible interest”, such as a beneficiary or insurance company. Proof of identification is required for all orders.

Most orders take 2 to 4 weeks for processing. Expedited processing and shipping are available for an additional $10.

Before placing an order, reference the Frequently Asked Questions to learn more. For more information and additional questions, contact the Office of Vital Records at 404-679-4702 or ROVER@dhr.state.ga.us.
