South Health District

Vital Records

Not all county health departments handle vital records for their county in Georgia; however, four of the health departments in the South Health District do.  All County Vital Records Offices now have the ability of issuing birth and death records for anyone born or who died in Georgia since 1919.  Previously, records were only available from the county where the event occurred, but through a new Vital Event Information System, records are now available for births and deaths occurring in any Georgia county.

Health Departments that issue birth and death records are:

Brooks County Health Department
500 East Courtland, Quitman, GA 31643
Phone: (229) 263-7585

Echols County Health Department
149 Hwy 94 East, Statenville, GA 31648
