All births and deaths that occur within the boundaries of Berwyn are certified by our Registrar and filed with the State of Illinois. Beginning in April of 2009 the Vital Records has joined the State of Illinois in the new Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS). This system allows the local registrar staff to enter deaths online, joining in the global efforts to reduce excess paperwork. The Vital Records department generates nearly $50,000 in revenue for the Berwyn Health District annually. Birth and death records are maintained dating back to 1917.
To obtain a certified copy of a birth or death certificate you need to fill out a form at our office, also a driver's license or picture ID and CASH ONLY. Birth certificates are $15 for the first Certified copy and $4 for each additional Certified copy. Death certificates are $17 for the first Certified copy and $6 for each additional Certified copy.
