    Google Translate Disclaimer

    The Maryland Department of Information Technology (“DoIT”) offers translations of the content through Google Translate. Because Google Translate is an external website, DoIT does not control the quality or accuracy of translated content. All DoIT content is filtered through Google Translate which may result in unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images and the general appearance on translated pages. Google Translate may maintain unique privacy and use policies. These policies are not controlled by DoIT and are not associated with DoIT’s privacy and use policies. After selecting a translation option, users will be notified that they are leaving DoIT’s website. Users should consult the original English content on DoIT’s website if there are any questions about the translated content.

    DoIT uses Google Translate to provide language translations of its content. Google Translate is a free, automated service that relies on data and technology to provide its translations. The Google Translate feature is provided for informational purposes only. Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without the inclusion of incorrect or inappropriate language. Google Translate is a third-party service and site users will be leaving DoIT to utilize translated content. As such, DoIT does not guarantee and does not accept responsibility for, the accuracy, reliability, or performance of this service nor the limitations provided by this service, such as the inability to translate specific files like PDFs and graphics (e.g. .jpgs, .gifs, etc.).

    DoIT provides Google Translate as an online tool for its users, but DoIT does not directly endorse the website or imply that it is the only solution available to users. All site visitors may choose to use alternate tools for their translation needs. Any individuals or parties that use DoIT content in translated form, whether by Google Translate or by any other translation services, do so at their own risk. DoIT is not liable for any loss or damages arising out of, or issues related to, the use of or reliance on translated content. DoIT assumes no liability for any site visitor’s activities in connection with use of the Google Translate functionality or content.

    The Google Translate service is a means by which DoIT offers translations of content and is meant solely for the convenience of non-English speaking users of the website. The translated content is provided directly and dynamically by Google; DoIT has no direct control over the translated content as it appears using this tool. Therefore, in all contexts, the English content, as directly provided by DoIT is to be held authoritative.

    The Talbot County Health Department will be issuing birth and death certificates to the public on a walk in basis.  The hours are from 8AM to Noon and 1PM to 4PM.  If you have any questions or require further assistance, please call 410-819-5600.

    For birth certificates you must be born in the State of Maryland.  You will need to supply a copy of a valid photo ID.  In this case, you will leave the premises with your birth certificate in hand as long as there are no corrections that need to be made to the document.  If your ID or driver's license is expired, you will need to provide two forms of proof such as copies of your social security card, bank statement, utility bill and/or W2.  In this case your birth certificate will be mailed to you.  The cost is $22 and can be paid by cash, check or money order.  The check or money order must be made out to the Talbot County Health Department, filled out completely, correctly and signed in the correct place.  We are not able to make changes/corrections to birth certificates and if a change/correction is needed, it can ONLY be made by contacting:
    The Division of Vital Records at 6764-B Reisterstown Road, Baltimore, MD  21215 at 1-410-764-3038.​
