The County Clerk is Clerk of the Supreme and County Court records. Under this authority; the office is the official repository of both civil court cases and criminal records. Our court documents date back to 1791 and are often used for historical research.
Public documents include civil court cases such as lawsuits, foreclosures, real property disputes, and money judgments. While court records are usually public record, some records such as divorces, adoptions, and guardianship are placed under seal by law. These documents are not accessible to the public. If you wish to search our public records, you may do so in our office or online at your own convenience. To sign up for access to our online records, please click here.
