Birth, Death and Marriage Records can be obtained in person, through the mail or online.
Many birth records are available to the public, however, some are not. The records that are not public would require a photo ID of a person listed on the record (Mother, Father, Child).
Most marriage records are available to the public, however, like the birth records some are not. To obtain a certified copy of a "non" public record, the person must have a photo ID and be listed on the record.
All death records are able to be viewed by the public. The fee to obtain a certified copy of any of the above in the City Clerk's Office is $10 cash.
We advise funeral directors to call the office prior to coming to be sure the death has been registered and is ready to be picked up.
To request a record through the mail, send a letter with:
Person's name and date of birth
Death or marriage
Your telephone number
Self- addressed stamped envelope
$10 Money Order
