The state health agencyâ€™s decision to regionalize means no more Oconee County office for copies of birth and death certificates. But the Oconee coronerâ€™s office has advice on where and how to obtain a birth or death certificate which may be required to obtain a driverâ€™s license, passport, documentation for employment, or life insurance benefits. The office of Coroner Karl Addis states there are two options: You can go to the DHEC website and click on the link identified as â€śVital Records.â€ť Follow the instructions and links to download forms to order certified copies. The second option requires a trip to the nearest regional DHEC office: Anderson County Health Department at 220 McGee Road, Anderson. Phone number is 864/260-5667. Certified death certificates may not be obtain from the Oconee Coronerâ€™s Office.
