Search Requests

Requests for searches need to be in writing and include all information that you have to assist in the search. A search fee of $10 for an initial search will be charged, however, any extensive searches will have additional fees and you will need to contact this office for those fees.

Searches requested by mail will be completed by a staff member as soon as possible but will be done as daily operations will allow. No requests can be emailed, as the fees must be paid at the time of the request. The fees will need to be paid in the form of a money order.

Individuals may come in and search records for themselves during normal business hours. Copies are $1.00 per page and certified copies will be an additional fee. Check with a staff member for the fee on the particular copy you need.
