Before a New York-issued document can receive an apostille, it should first go through the process called Exemplification. Exemplification is defined as "an attested copy of a document, under official seal", and the Exemplification Letter basically certifies that the attached vital record certificate is a true certified copy. A County Clerk Exemplification needs to be attached to the original document certifying the official who has signed the document before it can be submitted for an apostille.
