Proof of Identification and Lineage Required
In order for a person to obtain a certified copy of a birth, marriage, or death record, the requestor must present proof of identification. They must also present proof of direct and legitimate interest in the record if they are acquiring a record other than their own record. Please review all allowable forms of identification and ways to establish eligibility.
To authorize someone else to obtain a certified birth certificate for you, please complete an Authorization to Release a Vital Record Form.
The fee for a certified copy is $15. Each additional copy (of the same record) ordered at the same time is $6. Please make check or money order payable to "The City of Lewiston." Please note that the city also accepts Visa, Mastercard, and Discover credit card payments. Both the application form and/or the letter of request may be mailed or faxed to:
