Iowa Birth Records: Discover Your Loved One's True Identity

Birth records are considered part of a state and local government's vital records database, stored for the public to freely examine and use for their own research and information. These records often include copies of official birth certificates, which will provide you with the following information:

  • Date and place of birth
  • Full birth name
  • Full names of parents and their personal identifying information

In July 1880, Iowa already had its statewide vital recording of birth and death events. The Bureau of Vital Records has kept all the vital documents ever since. You may contact them by writing to the Bureau of Vital Records of the Iowa Department of Public Health.These are, however, restricted documents and are only limited to people who display direct and tangible interest in the record. You may be eligible for application if your name appears on the birth certificate, and if you are of the following: spouse, grandparent, sibling, grandchild or legal representative with a court order. You will then complete the application form to be downloaded from the department’s website and present a valid picture ID, such as State Identification card, driver’s license, Military Identification card or passport. Next, with your notarized signature, you must include the standard fee of $15, which will be non-refundable even if the requested documents are not found. You may also make use of other payment methods, such as money order or certified check made payable to the Iowa Department of Public Health. You must keep in mind to never send cash via mail. Aside from their walk-in, phone and mailing service, you may also process your documents online for a faster and more convenient transaction.
