A legal and certified copy of your baby's birth certificate may be obtained from the Register of Deeds at the Pennington County Courthouse or from any courthouse in the State of South Dakota, for any child born in South Dakota. There is currently a fee of $15 payable to the courthouse for the certified birth certificate copy.
