BOWLING GREEN — The Wood County Health Department can now issue birth certificates for anyone born in Ohio after 1907 for $23.
Before recent improvements, those looking to purchase a copy of a birth certificate had to go to the county where the birth occurred or to the state office of vital statistics.
No appointment is necessary. The health department, 1840 East Gypsy Lane Rd., is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
More information is available from the vital statistics office at 419-354-1050 or online at co.wood.oh.us/HealthDepartment.
