In Bethany, the Town Clerk and Assistant Town Clerks are also the Registrar and Assistant Registrars of Vital Statistics.  The principal statutory provisions relating to these duties are found in Sections 7-36 through 7-76 and 19a-42 of the Connecticut General Statutes.

Only a Registrar of Vital Statistics or the Commissioner of Public Health may issue certified copies of birth, marriage, death or fetal death certificates. 

PLEASE NOTE: You will be charged a non-refundable $4.00 service fee, PLUS credit card fee, after the online order is placed, regardless of whether Bethany has the record on file.  If you are uncertain, we recommend confirming with the Town Clerk's Office that they have the desired certificate before ordering.  Please call the office directly at 203-393-2100 ext. 1104.

Notarized copies of vital records have no legal status (CGS 7-62a).
