Many families may have lost all vital documents due to the deadly wildfires. The Center for Health Statistics has issued temporary rules to waive fees for people who have experienced loss of property or life associated with the Oregon wildfires. This temporary rule provides up to three certified copies of Oregon vital records free of charge if requested in connection with the Governor’s Executive Order 20-35. This new rule will remain in effect until March 1, 2021.
Order copies of Oregon records and apply for the waiver on the Oregon Vital Records website.
Obtain records from other states through an online service like VitalChek or by contacting that state's vital records department directly.
