Birth affidavits should be used to correct minor spelling and data entry errors on original records. They should not be used to change items, especially race, gender or year of birth. To change or correct an item, which will result in a new certificate, you will need to get a Court Ordered Correction. See link for affidavit correction of birth record: https://www.odh.ohio.gov/-/media/ODH/ASSETS/Files/vs/Birth-affidavit-PDF-Form.pdf?la=en

When a legal change of name has been granted to a person whose birth occurred since December 20, 1908, the Ohio Department of Health, Office of Vital Statistics, can accept a certified copy of the court ordered legal change of name to update the birth record. The court order must have been granted by a probate court. Some courts may send the certified copy directly to the office, while some may require the petitioner to do so. The exact wording in the court order will be referenced when the birth name is changed. The new information as listed on the court order is the information that will be reflected in the updated birth record. Please call(###) ###-####for assistance prior to sending the certified paperwork to that office.
