Genealogy Search

We are glad to assist you in your search for your family genealogy.  All we need are the persons’ names and approximate dates of birth or death and what information you are searching for.  We will search our files and allow you to view the documents related to your request.  While all death records are open for review, birth records are limited due to the confidential health information they contain.  Unfortunately genealogy requests can not be addressed over the phone, you are welcome to come to the office directly, email or mail a written request to us.
