Birth Certificates

Certified Copy: $10

All births that occurred in the Town of Aurora are filed with the Town Clerk and a birth certificate is issued. Our birth records go back to 1893. A certified copy of a birth certificate is available for $10 (cash, check or money order payable to: Aurora Town Clerk) to an applicant eligible to receive it. Application forms are available from the Town Clerk's office.

A certified copy or a certified transcript of a birth certificate may be issued only:

  • To the person named on the birth certificate, if 18 years of age or older;
  • To the parents or lawful representative of the person named on the birth certificate;
  • To a person with a New York State Court Order;
  • To a municipal, state or federal agency when needed for official purposes.

The applicant must provide a driver's license as proof of identification. If a driver's license is not available the following may be presented:

  • State issued non-driver's license identification card;
  • Military identification card;
  • Passport;
  • Employer's photo identification card;
  • Police report documenting the applicant's name, address and theft or loss of positive identification.
