State Issues Warning about Fake Vital Records Websites

State officials are warning residents to avoid using any third-party sites to find vital records.

In a release by the State Health Commissioner, officials urged residents to not pay fees for any vital record application forms, which are free. Searches require payment.

A growing number of fake vital records websites have been reported.

Official information forms are available at any Vital Records office in the state, the Virginia Department of Health’s website, and the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.

The county also offers four vital records office locations, including one in Reston (1850 Cameron Glen Drive, Suite 100).
