The following records may be searched without assistance:
*Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates
(Mid 1800s to current)
Birth, Death &
Marriage certificates are indexed by the first letter of the last name and then
chronological. (i.e. Ottum would be under "O" and then by the date the
certificate arrived in our office.) Our marriage records are also cross
indexed in the same manner by the wife's maiden name.
*Census Records for 1905 and
In the 1880 Census Records the families are listed
alphabetically under the township or village of residence. In the 1905
census records the families are listed under the township of village of
residence but are not alphabetical.
*Real Estate Records or Land
(Mid 1800s to
Our land records are indexed by the land and by the grantor
(seller) and grantee (buyer). The grantor and grantee are indexed under
the first letter of the last name and then chronological. (i.e. If you
were searching for Rose Ottum, you would search under "O" for Ottum and then by
the date the document came in the office.) To search by grantor/grantee
can be a very time consuming process. The land is indexed by the Section,
Township and Range and the quarter section or by the Plat name, lot and block OR
by the Certified Survey Map and Lot number.
