Vital Records are available from two different places. Same record, same fee...just two different places to write to.

  • First, the county courthouse has a set that are available for the public to use for genealogy research. I suggest a phone call first to find out what the specifics are and "best times" to do research.

    Florence County Courthouse
    Register of Deeds
    501 Lake Avenue
    Florence, WI 54121
    Tele: 715.589.4321

    Since prior to 1882, Florence County was considered part of Marinette County, and prior to 1879, it was part of Oconto County. If you are searching for records before 1882, you'll need to contact Marinette or Oconto Courthouses for those records. The Florence County Courthouse has the following records starting in 1882: Birth, Death, Marriage, Land, Probate, and Court records  

  • Second, on site searching in the state vital records office in Madison is possible with advance appointments at particular hours and on particular days, for one hour time blocks. Contact the office for complete information on this procedure before traveling to Madison. Some records are not accessible. What makes this convenient is that if your ancestors relocated like mine did, this might very well be "one-stop-shopping" without having to tour half of the state of Wisconsin!

The following are sites that tell you more on obtaining copies of the following. They link up to forms that you can print from your computer and either mail or fax for faster service. 

And, the Wisconsin State Historical Society has a GREAT new genealogy page that will allow you to search over 1,000,000 -- yes - 1 MILLION names in their indexes FOR FREE.  If you require a certificate, contact them directly and they will help you through the request/payment process.

Also, please don't forget the option of  Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness.  If you have a specific name and date, these volunteers will do limited look-ups.  Also, when checking for county volunteers, be sure to check DANE county, too as that is where the state library is located.  And, if the records are before 1907, LDS has them on microfilm, too.
