Birth certificates are only available to the parents listed on the birth certificate, or the child over the age of eighteen. You will need to produce a form of identification such as a driver's license, non-driver's license or a valid passport. Certified copies of birth certificates are $10. The birth must have actually occurred in the corporate City limits of Ogdensburg to be on file in this office.
Note: For births and deaths that occurred at the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center, the information is now on file in the City Clerk's Office.
Death Certificate Request Requirements
Death certificates are only available to a spouse, parent or child of the deceased, or by someone demonstrating a legal or lawful purpose. Certified copies of death certificates are $10. The death must have actually occurred in the corporate City limits of Ogdensburg to be on file in this office.
Marriage Certificate Request Requirements
Marriage license information is available to the bride, groom or legal representative with proper identification (driver's license, non-driver's license or a valid passport). Certified copies of marriage licenses are $10. Marriage certificates are on file where the marriage license was purchased, not where the marriage ceremony was performed.
Birth, death and marriage certificates can be obtained in person at the City Clerk's Office, through the mail, and online (see the Vital Records page). When requesting certificates through the mail, the completed application, copies of proper identification, and payment in the form of a money order must be mailed to the City Clerk's Office, 330 Ford Street, Ogdensburg, NY 13669.
