Genealogy Requests


Our office is open for Genealogy research Monday - Friday 8:30-4:30.  Records are open for public viewing.  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.  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.
