Here is a link listing by state where you can write for birth certificates. I have found that some states are stricter then others and you might run into a problem , but just keep digging.
To save on money and give you more of a sense of pride do the search, writing, emails, even the phone calls yourself. For example, my birth was in Calif. and the price for a copy is NOW only $14.00 (which I am glad to say I still have the original copy from 54yrs ago) compared to the "will search" site wants $53plus $74plus
There are other ways to locate a birth certificate, by going to your local library. Take afew hours or even the whole day and just walk the isles of book in the "GENEALOGY" section. You will be amazed at what you find. Talk with the clerk and pick up the free literature they have out on the counters. This is where you can use a computer which is set up just for the genealogy research, try it out!
