An individual may search Death and Marriage records at no charge. Due to limited space, genealogists will be allowed to work in the office on a first-come, first-serve basis. A time limit may be necessary due to various circumstances.
Birth records for genealogy are only available when the birth occurred 100 years ago, or more, to any applicant. A birth record that is less than 100 years old can only be obtained by an heir with proof of death.
Hours for genealogy: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during normal office hours
