May 15, 2024

Please join us for our free webinar presented by Molly Crawford, State Registrar for the Office of Vital Records, discussing the recent law change for adoptees accessing original birth certificates.

Adoptee Access to Original Birth Records
Beginning July 1, 2024, adopted people born in Minnesota who are 18 or older will be able to request their original birth certificates from the Minnesota Department of Health. Birth parents named on an original birth record may submit a “Contact Preference Form” to indicate their preference for contact by the adopted person.

Questions? Please contact the Minnesota Department of Health at [email protected] or651-201-5970. Click here to visit their website.

Please note: This webinar will be taking place at the same time as our regularly scheduled Search and Reunion Support Group. Individuals who register to attend our support group will automatically be invited to join this webinar.
