Vital Records

Birth, Death & Marriage Certificates

Certified copies of birth, death, and marriage can be obtained from this office once entitlement has been proven. Certified copies are $15 each. The Recorder's Office only accepts local checks for certified copies of vital records or marriage applications. We will accept cash or money orders only for out-of-state requests.


 Our records are open for public inspection during our normal working hours.  A plain, uncertified copy is stamped "Not for Legal Purposes".  The cost is $1.00 per copy.
