Birth/Death/Marriage Records

These records can be obtained in person or via the mail.

BIRTH RECORDS:

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).

MARRIAGE RECORDS:

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.

DEATH RECORDS:

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 $10.00 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 the person's name and date of birth, death, or marriage, your telephone number, a Self- Addressed Stamped Envelope and a $10.00 MONEY ORDER.

Also include a self-addressed stamped envelope to:
