North Carolina General Statutes 130A Article 4 requires that the Health Department administer the Vital Records Program under the direction of the Health Director. The Health Director appoints Deputy Registrars to process vital records. vital records protection

In accordance with NC General Statutes, all birth and death records should be filed with the Deputy Registrar within five days of occurrence. The Registrar’s office receives and processes certificates, making necessary corrections with proper documentation.

After being processed, copies of these certificates are filed with the Anson County Register of Deeds and the original documents are submitted to NC State Vital Records Office where they are maintained. Certified copies of birth and death certificates can be obtained (for a fee) through the Anson County Register of Deeds, which is located in the Anson County Government Center 101 South Greene Street  Wadesboro, NC  28170.

Birth Certificates

The following information is required for this process:

  • Proof of delivery or pregnancy (records of prenatal care, ultrasound, etc.)
  • Current ID or valid government issued ID
  • Proof of address where birth occurred (i.e. utility bill delivered by USPS)
