Requests for Recorded Documents can be made
in person, by mailing a completed application for a certified copy of a vital record, or our self service page. See details by clicking on the type of document below. We do not accept requests for copies by phone, fax, or email. Some documents can be ordered online through an independent partner company that will mail the documents to you. Details are on the Ordering Records Online page.
Be sure the information you supply is complete and accurate. If you request a copy of an official record and cannot find it, we are not able to refund the fee. The California Statutes require us to retain it as a search fee. See our fee schedule page.
Our location, hours, and mailing address can be found on our Contact Information page.
Check our calendar for dates closed if you will be requesting copies in person. The Fresno County Department of Public Health can also provide birth and death certificates for the current and previous year only.
