Thank you for visiting the Ohio History Connection's Select Ohio Public Records Index. The records available for research include the following:


Photocopies of uncertified Ohio death certificates are available for purchase online. Use the Index to find and select your certificates, save them to your list and click on purchase to checkout through the Ohio History Store. Copies cost $7 per certificate (Ohio residents pay 7.5% sales tax).

To request copies of death certificates from December 20, 1908 to 1953, that are not available in our online Select Ohio Public Records Index, please complete an online request form. Please note, stillborn death certificates are only available from December 20, 1908 to 1935 and from 1942 to 1949.

Please note: We can only provide uncertified copies of death certificates. Since we did not create the original documents, we cannot certify them for legal purposes. If you need a certified copy, please contact the public health department or probate court of the county of death.

Copies of death certificates from the years 1954 to 1963 will be delivered by email with the document attached as an image file. All other Select Ohio Public Records copies will be shipped by postal mail.
