In Person
To pick up certificates in person, please order your certificates by phone and they will be prepared in advance of your arrival. Walk-in requests are also accepted; you may wait while the certificates are prepared.

By Mail
To receive certificates by mail, send a check or money order payable to: Town of Lincoln. Your request should include the name and date of birth, a contact telephone or email address, and a self-addressed stamped envelope. If the record requires identification, the appropriate person must sign the request and include a photocopy of a driver's license or government-issued photo ID. Sorry, we cannot accept credit card payments at this time.

Required Identification
A record is not accessible to the general public if the parents were unmarried at the time the child was born (and have not since married and amended the birth record) or if the father's name does not appear on the record. When this is true, only the mother, father (if listed), or child may request a certificate; identification will be required. Identification is not required for other records.
