The Office of Vital Statistics registers births, deaths and fetal deaths occurring within the city limits of the City of Berkeley.
The Office of Vital Statistics maintains birth and death records for two years after the date of birth or death. For records older than two years contact the Alameda County Recorder's Office at (510) 272-6362. For births or deaths occurring outside Alameda County, please call the county of birth or death directly as each jurisdiction has its own procedures for obtaining death or birth certificates.
