Vital Records

Why spend more for your vital records??

Why get your genealogical birth, marriage and death records through the County at their high prices?  The Stephenson County Genealogical Society (SCGS) provides genealogy-copy vital records for researchers and family historians at $2 per record.

Vital Records for Stephenson provided at $2 per document (plus postage, if mailed)

Marriage           24 June 1837         through     29 December 1940

Births                  3 May 1855          through     8 June 1915

Delayed Births    23 January 1903   through     26 January 1912

Deaths                6 January 1870     through     23 December 1964

Vital records can be requested in-person of SCGS volunteers in the Frances Woodhouse History Room at the Freeport Public Library (100 Douglas Street, Freeport, IL) during volunteer hours. If you are unable to visit the History Room during regular volunteer hours, you can request an appointment via email.

Vital records can be requested online through our Request Research page; however, genealogy vital records will only be emailed or mailed once payment is received.
