This information is included at the online site of the Ohio Historical's always a good idea to first check state agencies, and places like this.....when dealing with more or less modern dates, in particular...they are often available online.

December 20, 1908 to the present
The state of Ohio began issuing certificates for births on December 20, 1908. The Ohio Department of Health holds birth certificates for the state of Ohio from December 20, 1908 to the present. You should contact the Ohio Department of Health at the address below for information concerning their request procedures.

Guidelines for requesting birth records
Before making a request for a birth record, please confirm that we hold records for the county and time period by reviewing County Birth Records Held at the Ohio Historical Society. Requests that are submitted with a county, name of child, and exact year of birth are processed by our staff as COPY REQUESTS. The county where the birth was registered and the child's name must be provided, but our staff will search a 10 year time frame if the exact year of birth is unknown. Requests that are submitted with a county, name of child, and a time frame within a 10 year span are processed by our staff as RESEARCH REQUESTS. A complete description of all request policies can be reviewed at Guidelines for Offsite Copy and Research Requests.
