Order official Wisconsin Birth Certificates and Vital Records online

How do I get a Wisconsin birth certificate?


To request a birth certificate, you must be the person named on the certificate, a parent, a legal guardian, or have a court order.

You will need to provide your full name, date of birth, place of birth, parents' full names, and your relationship to the person on the certificate.

You will also need to provide a copy of your valid government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport, and a self-addressed stamped envelope.


Visit the Wisconsin Vital Records Office website and select the "Birth Certificates" option.
