Updated forms

minnesota department of health

Greetings County Vital Records Offices!

The Office of Vital Records recently posted two updated forms to the Minnesota Department of Health County Vital Record Office Forms webpage.

The updated forms are:

• Statement to Identify
• Birth Record Amendment Packet

Both forms are accessible, fillable and have the current MDH logo. See the attachments to this email for the PDFs.

The “Statement to Identify” has the same content as the 2007 version it replaces, except for some word changes. Please print the new “Statement to Identify” form for use in your office and take the old form out of circulation.

The Birth Record Amendment Packet is completely new. It replaces the old Birth Record Amendment Application and the 2013 “Birth Record Amendments“ information sheet. Please take these old PDFs and any copies your office has out of circulation.

The new packet contains three parts: Instructions (for filling out the application), “What you need to know about supporting documents” and a Birth Record Amendment Application. A team of Office of Vital Records employees developed the nine-page packet over the last four months. Print the entire Birth Record Amendment Packet dated 9/2018 if your customer needs a copy. Otherwise, the customer can find the packet on the MDH Birth Record Amendments webpage.

If you have questions or comments about these documents, please contact me at kirsti.taipale@state.mn.us.
