Apostille is a French word meaning footnote, and it's an additional form of authentication given to a notarized document to certify that the document is a true copy of the original. So while it does certify that the form is an exact copy of the original, it does not certify that the content is accurate. Below is a partial list of documents that can be given an apostille.
The Office of the Registrar sends the documents to the Indiana Secretary of State who, in turn, sends the apostille documents to the country of intended use. Only those countries who participate in the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents can participate in the service. The Office of the Secretary of State provides apostille and authentication service to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals for documents that will be used overseas.
