Unfortunately the form is only available in German, but it allows you to pay the fee for the certificate via credit card or PayPal.
Please note that there was no obligation to register children born in the U.S. military hospital at Standesamt Würzburg. Therefore we may not be able to issue a birth certificate for you although you were born in Würzburg. We strongly recommend to contact us via email (urkunden@stadt.wuerzburg.de) with your information before you order and pay the fee.

To be eligible to order online either your name must be recorded on the certificate or you must be directly related to the person recorded on the certificate (parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren). Please explain your state of relationship in the field “comments”.

Siblings who are 16 years or older can get a birth or death certificate if they can prove a legitimate interest (e.g. for economic reasons). Others can order records of civil status of a third person only if they can prove a legal interest or provide a letter of attorney of an eligible person. A legal interest can only be acknowledged if the knowledge of civil status of a third person is necessary for prosecution of rights or defence against any claims. Please be aware that genealogical research does not justify a legal interest.

If you need a certificate for genealogical research please send us a an email, or a fax to explain your interest and provide proof of entitlement.
