Genealogy Resources

Due to the fragile nature of our original records and confidentiality concerns regarding personal health information, we cannot allow individuals to consult records themselves. Our staff is happy to search them for you. To launch a search, your request must contain the deceased’s surname and an approximate year of death. Responses are completed on a first-come-first-served basis, and the time required varies based on the number and complexity of other requests we’re processing. We have no set charges for research services, but donations are appreciated to support preservation of documents. Because we’re unable to complete extensive genealogy research, we encourage you to consult these helpful resources:
