The Registrar in Orange County is charged with the responsibility to accurately register, maintain the integrity of, and preserve the records of the vital events of the citizens of Orange County.
The Orange County Health Department houses the birth and death records for persons who were born in or died in Orange County. These records include the current records and those dating back to 1882.
For all birth and death records outside of Orange County, you may contact the specific county where the event took place or the Indiana State Department of Health by calling (317) 233-2700.
Records requested for genealogy purposes must be done in person between the hours of 9-11 am or 1-3 pm and are limited to no more than 5 searches per day. In order for us to provide an accurate search, you must have the full name and date of birth or death of the person whose record you are requesting. Under Indiana law, birth records are not publicly accessible for 75 years to protect privacy and identity.
The Department of Health does not have records of marriage and/or divorce. Those records are recorded and kept in the office of the Orange County Clerk, phone number (812) 723-2649.
