Swift County Birth Records (Minnesota)

The Swift County Clerk is responsible for maintaining important documents for a county or local area, including vital documents like Swift County birth records. These birth records include birth certificates that list the baby's name, date of birth, time of birth, and the location, as well as personal information about the parents. A Minnesota birth certificate acts as legal proof of birth and citizenship, and it may be required to apply for a MN driver's license or passport, receive a Social Security number, or apply for government services. Other birth records include demographic records on birth, which are useful for researchers, as well as records on birth that can be used for Swift County genealogical research. Birth records can be requested online at the Clerk Office website.
