Alabama Birth & Death Records Search
Coffee County Birth and Death Records
Unlike gleaning most official information in Alabama, locating and retrieving the birth certificates and death records of individuals is a straightforward and easy process. Because the Alabama Department of Public Health handles all aspects of Vital Records, they are the only organization you need to deal with in order to procure these records. Their website is located at http://adph.org.
Vital Records include not only birth and death records, but also marriage and divorce records. However, birth certificates and records of death are in a category different from other Vital Records because they can only be accessed by persons with a high level of relation to the person on the certificate. The full list of requirements to obtain a birth certificate for someone other than yourself can be located at http://adph.org/vitalrecords/index.asp?id=1559.
Death records, while not facing limitations that are quite as strict as those of birth records, also require you to demonstrate a level of relation. The full details can be found here: http://adph.org/vitalrecords/index.asp?id=1560.
You should note that all of the restrictions on Vital Records, for both birth certificates and death records, expire after a set period of time and become accessible by anyone. For birth records, this time period is 125 years, and for death records, it is 25 years.
Obtaining any type of Vital Record requires a fee to be paid to the ADPH of $15.00 for the first copy, and $6.00 for each additional copy.
Coffee County does not play host to a branch office for the ADPH, so you must utilize their website.
