How do I find genealogy records?

Come into our office between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:30 pm to check our indexes to see if the records are available. Our records go back to 1882 for births and deaths. Or you can write to our once with a list of records that you are looking for. We will check the indexes and provide you with a list of what is available. We do not photocopy records. We charge $15 for each birth certificate and $15 for each death certificate.

These are certified copies that we type from the birth/death registers. All information will be typed on the certificate as listed in the register. Other sources for genealogy records are:
