Town Clerk Offices


In New York most vital records (birth, marriage & death) are not kept at the county level, but at the town and city level.  An exception is New York City, where the vital records for the the counties of Bronx, Kings,  New York, Queens, and Richmond are kept at the New York City Municipal Archives or at the New York City Health Department.  

Below is the contact information for the various town and city clerk offices in Nassau and Suffolk County.
