11/10/02: IMPORTANT INFO FOR THOSE WHO WERE BORN AT WAYNE COUNTY GENERAL OR "ELOISE HOSPITAL!":
I was born at Wayne County General Hospital. Where do I get my birth certificate?
The records for Wayne County General Hospital or Eloise Hospital, which are not within the City limits of Wayne, are available at the Wayne County Clerk's Office in the City-County Building in Detroit (313) 224-5536. If the child was born before 1978 and the parents were not married at the time, it must be obtained from the state.
