Other Records

Q: Where do I obtain a copy of birth, marriage, death, domestic partnership, civil union and adoption records?

A: The State Bureau of Vital Statistics and Registration, Department of Health and Senior Services maintains the following vital records:

  • Copies of Birth, marriage and death records back to 1901
  • Domestic partnership records back to 2004
  • Civil union records back to 2007
  • Adoptions – foreign and domestic
  • Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth data back to 1969

NOTE: New Jersey law protects and restricts the release of vital records; as such, vital records are not public records and cannot be searched online.
