How to Obtain Your Records

Q.
How can I obtain a copy of a birth, death or marriage certificate?
A.  A certificate can be obtained through mail, in person or over the Internet. We have forms that you can download from our web site or you can submit a request online through Vital Check at www.vitalcheck.com.

Q.
What do I need to obtain a birth, death or marriage certificate?
A.  A valid state issued driver’s license or non-driver’s I.D.  For more information, visit our Vital Records web page.

Q.
Can I get a copy of any record from the City?
A.  All records are available, unless an exception permits an agency to deny access. Most of the exceptions are based upon common sense and the potential for harm that would arise by means of disclosure. If disclosure of records would be damaging to an individual or preclude a government agency from carrying out its duties, it is likely that some aspects of the records may be withheld. (NYS Freedom of Information Public Officers Law Article 6 SECTIONS 84-90).

Q.
How far back do your genealogy records go?
A.  We have birth, death, and marriage records from 1891 to present. However, we may not have a record from 1891 to 1913 because it was not until 1914 that it was required by law to be filed. If you are looking for a record before 1891, you can visit www.ancestry.com or go to the Cayuga County Historian at 157 Genesee St. Auburn, NY 13021. Phone: 315-253-1300 -- www.co.cayuga.ny.us .
