How to Find Birth Records Online

by eHow Contributor

Want to find out someones birthday? Birth records are readily available to the public. All you need to know is where to look. Here are a few tips on how to find birth records online.

Begin with gathering the necessary information. In order to find out someone's birth date you will need to know either their first and last name, telephone number, or social security number. The more information you have the better.

Head to Govbirthrecords.org. Here you will be able to search a wide database of birth records by name, phone number, or social security number.

Type in the information into the corresponding search field. If you are searching by name, make sure to type in the state where the individual was born, not where they currently reside. If you are searching by phone number, make sure you are using a land line number, as cell phone numbers seldom work. If you are searching by first and last name, make sure you know the persons full first and last name given to them at birth.
