Vital Records

Vital Record Searches can be requested through the Clerk's Office.  Our office has birth records, death records and marriage licenses dating back to 1866.

You may request a copy of a birth certificate, death certificate or marriage license by mail or by personally coming into our office.

Personal requests for a Birth Certificate for people born after the year 1915 must come from the person needing the certificate - a spouse/friend/child cannot request or pick up the record.  However, a parent named on the Birth Certificate can get one for a child.

1) Written or typed request of record

2) Copy of your Drivers License or State ID

3) A telephone number which we can reach you at if any questions arise

4) Payment in the form of cash or check:
