Order a Birth Certificate
Allegan County can provide birth certificates only for individuals actually born in this county. We have birth records beginning in 1867.
PLEASE NOTE: The only people who have the authority to request a birth certificate would be the child and/or either parent named on the certificate. (The child must be at least 15 years of age to request their own record.) The exceptions are: a legal guardian with guardianship papers signed by a judge, an heir with documentation that the individual is deceased, or in the case where the individual would be more than 100 years old. Certified copies of birth certificates can be ordered by mail or by visiting our office.
