To order Birth (or Death) certificates by mail, you can send a written request that has been notarized, along with a photocopy of your current ID (such as a valid driver's license). In your request, make sure to include:
the name of the individual,
date of birth (or death),
both parents' names (include mother's maiden name),
the purpose for requesting the document,
a mailing address to send the certified copy of the certificate,
your phone number (if we have any questions),
self-addressed, stamped envelope,
Remember that, by law, only certain people are eligible to get a copy of a birth or death record. No requests will be honored unless they include proper identification.
The current fee is $10 for each document, payable to the Massena Town Clerk, by certified bank check or money order.
Mailed requests should be directed to: Town of Massena Town Clerk 60 Main Street Massena, New York 13662
