Regarding Birth Registrations

Subscribe Subscribe to this page

The Vital Records Section of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services started registering births that have occurred in the State of Nebraska since 1904.

Birth certificates are computer generated, printed on secure safety paper, and certified with the raised seal of the State of Nebraska. They are accepted by passport agencies, Social Security and other government entities for traveling abroad, school registration, sporting activities, etc. On this page you will find information to assist you with birth registration. We invite you to also review our PDF FAQs.

This page will be updated frequently. Please SUBSCRIBE to receive email updates when new information is added.
