I need to get a copy of a birth, death or marriage certificate. What is required?

If an individual was born, passed away or obtained their marriage license in the City of Batavia, the record will be on file in the Clerk’s office.  A form can be completed and mailed to our office with payment of $10 per copy or you can stop in, complete a short form and walk out with the record in minutes.  Only the person on the birth certificate or their parents can get a copy of a birth certificate.  Only the spouses can obtain the marriage certificate unless a NYS court order is issued for someone else to get the record.  Spouse, parent, child or siblings of the deceased or someone with a documented lawful purpose may obtain a death certificate of an individual.
