Genealogy Search

We are glad to assist you in your search for your family genealogy. While all death records are open for review, birth records are limited due to the confidential health information they contain. To begin a search, we need the names and approximate dates of birth or death. We will search our files and allow you to view the documents related to your request. Unfortunately genealogy search 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.
