Birth & Death Certificates

To order Birth (or Death) certificates by mail, you can send a written request that has been notarized, along with a photocopy of your current ID (such as a valid driver's license). In your request, make sure to include:

  • the name of the individual, 
  • date of birth (or death), 
  • both parents' names (include mother's maiden name), 
  • the purpose for requesting the document, 
  • a mailing address to send the certified copy of the certificate, 
  • your phone number (if we have any questions), 
  • and payment. 
Remember that, by law, only certain people are eligible to get a copy of a birth or death record.    No requests will be honored unless they include proper identification.

The current fee is $10 for each document, payable to the Massena Town Clerk, by certified bank check or money order.

Mailed requests should be directed to:
Town of Massena
Town Clerk
60 Main Street
Massena, New York 13662
