Vital Records Verification Security Check

You may verify whether a Macomb County vital record has actually been issued by the Macomb County clerk using this system, reducing the risk of fraud and preventing identity theft. Macomb County documents that may be verified include: birth records, death records, business registrations, marriage licenses, and some military discharge papers. Vital records documents issued by Macomb County Clerk / Register of Deeds Carmella Sabaugh's office on or after January 1, 2007 may be verified using this system.

For example, a certified copy of a 1960 marriage license issued on July 1, 2007 may be verified using this system because the certified copy was issued after January 1, 2007.

But a certified copy of a 1960 marriage license issued on November 1, 2006 could not be verified using this system because the certified copy was not issued after January 1, 2007.

Please call Macomb County Clerk / Register of Deeds Carmella Sabaugh's office at 586-469-5205 during business hours if you need help verifying a Macomb County vital record.
