Geneology Requests


Our office is open for Geneology research Monday - Friday 8:30-4:30.  Records are open for public viewing, but we are not allowed to give any information out over the phone. We ask that you limit your group of researchers to 2 so others may also look. 


Certified copies are $20.00 and require a tangible interest.  Plain paper copies from our books are $5.00 per record and can only be requested in person.  As time allows, we will process your copy requests.  Sometimes it may be necessary to collect the fee and copies requested and then mail the copies out in a few days. 


The best times to view records and purchase copies is in the morning.
