Birth Records

The Town Clerk's office has vital records that date back to 1770. Per state statute, all births over 100 years old are open to the public. Birth certificates are on file for anyone born in Brooklyn, or anyone whose mother resided in Brooklyn at the time of his or her birth. Photo identification must be presented when request is made. Birth records may be obtained in-person, by mail or over the phone (if over 100 years old). If a request is made by mail, a copy of the applicant's photo identification must be attached. You may request a birth certificate for yourself, your child, grandchild, parent, grandparent or spouse. Birth records under 100 years old may NOT be requested by phone.

Certified copies of marriage licenses are $20.00 per copy.
