Traci Maloney, Deputy Registrar

The Office of Vital Statistics maintains birth and death records for Scioto County excluding those that occurred within the city limits of Portsmouth, with records going back as far as 1909.

Birth records are important for use in entrance to school, military service, obtaining passports, retirement pensions and social security pensions. Death records are needed for settlement of insurance claims, settlements of estates, pensions and tracing of ancestors.

Vital records (records of births, deaths, and fetal deaths) are public records in Ohio. This means that anyone who can submit the basic facts of a record may request a copy.

Ohio birth records have a statewide issuance and may be obtained from any health department within the state of Ohio.

Death records may be requested at the local health department which has jurisdiction within the area that the death occurred.

Cost: $25.00 for each certified copy requested. We accept, cash, check or money order.
