Are There Free Birth Records?
There is no such thing as free birth records. For all the websites that claim they can provide you with a free birth
record, look for the hidden fees and look for the catch!
Birth records may be obtained for any number of reasons, and they are vital for receiving other documents, such as a
driver license or a passport. Some employers ask for birth records when applying for a job, and birth records are a
great resource when performing genealogy searches.
Local Vital Records Office vs. Online Services
Regardless of where you get your birth record, it will cost you money to do so. Your first stop may be your state or
local vital records office. Although this may be your best option, particularly if you are in the same city or state of
your birth, retrieving your birth records from a reputable website may be slightly more convenient.
Many times, the vital records office of a state or local government is overburdened with a high number of requests
for vital records. As a result, it may take some time to receive an original, raised seal copy of your birth record. The
fees for obtaining a birth record is often less through your vital records office than online, but the convenience of
receiving the birth record in a shorter length of time is often well worth the extra cost.
Why Birth Records are Not Free
Birth records, regardless of who obtains them, must be pulled from a state or local vital records office, and these
offices always charge a small administrative fee to do so. Therefore, a company that says they can provide a free
copy of your birth record is misrepresenting the truth. In fact, you will often find that they charge a number of
related fees that end up costing you more than simply ordering the birth records on your own.
However, there are many websites, such as www.archives.kr.cx, that take the proper channels to produce results.
Often times, it is these websites that can help you locate loved ones or ancestors that may be incredibly difficult to
do if you performed a search through your local vital records office.
These websites facilitate process of performing genealogy searches and allow you to search for the birth records of
loved ones from the comfort of your home. Reputable websites often have easy-to-use search tools that eliminate
the hassle of coming up empty handed; instead, they offer full records access and easy retrieval of birth records.
Best of all, these websites allow you to obtain all of the information you need in one comprehensive location. They
can even provide you with links to other genealogy websites to retrieve all of the information necessary to complete
a thorough, comprehensive search.
