Birth Records

Welcome to Calhoun County Vital Records. We can help with: 


Births                   Deaths                   Marriages


Birth Certificates for travel, employment, school, sports, social security, etc. To obtain a raised seal, certified copy of your birth certificate, you can write to us or come into the office. However, there are certain records we do not have:

  • Were you born in Calhoun County? (We have Calhoun County records only)
  • Were your parents married at the time of your birth? (We do not have single parent births prior to July of 1995)
  • Were you adopted? (We will not have your record if you were adopted)
For the records we do not have, you may contact the Iowa Department of Public Health. You can call them at (515) 281-4944.

You may use the "Request a copy of county Vital Record" form provided below*, to write to us or come in and see us. A fee of $20.00 is required for each request, sorry no credit card orders. Cash, check or money orders are accepted.
