Sections GN 00308.006-GN 00308.235 contain the addresses of specific State, territorial, and local Bureaus of Vital
Statistics (BVS) and registrars. They are not an availability listing.
Every section in this subchapter containing information about a State's Vital Statistics
includes a Universal Routing Locator (url) to the State-maintained BVS site. Use these
links for the most up-to-date information on requesting BVS information.
NOTE: Sections containing information to U.S. Territories (GN 00308.200, GN 00308.210-GN 00308.230) might contain urls to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). This information
may not be as current as that in the State-maintained websites.
Whether the FO can certify, verify or obtain a free copy of the county birth or death
record is indicated by either a “YES” or “NO,” if known.
