Cleburne County Birth and Death Records

Unlike investigating criminal records, arrest records, and even court records, digging up information regarding birth records and death records is relatively easy.

Although some Vital Records, such as divorce and marriage certificates, are open to the public and can be accessed by anybody for any reason, birth certificates and death records are not.

Most of the requirements for obtaining a record of birth expire and are lifted one hundred and twenty five years after the birth of the person listed, and many of the requirements to obtain a death certificate expire 25 years after they are created.

All Vital Records, including birth certificates and records of death, require a $15.00 fee, paid to the ADPH before they can be obtained. Further copies of these Vital Records costs $6.00.
