You should request the Letter of Exemplification when ordering the birth or death certificate.
A marriage certificate originating from the five boroughs of New York City must be obtained from the Marriage Bureau in certified copy with an original signature of the City Clerk.
Birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates issued outside the five counties of New York City can be obtained from the New York State Department of Health or directly from the local registrar or town clerk of the city, town or village where the event occurred. The original document must then be presented to the county clerk's office in the county where the document was obtained for authentication.
