What is the fee for a genealogy copy?

The standard fee for a genealogy copy is $22.00 - This includes a copy of the certificate, a search over a three-year span, the retrieval and re-filing of the microfilm/microfiche, and either a copy of the record or a no record report. When a search for more than a three-year span is requested, the fee is higher (see table below).

 Period Searched  Fee
 1 to 3 years  $22.00
 4 to 10 years  $42.00
 11 to 20 years  $62.00
 21 to 30 years  $82.00
 31 to 40 years  $102.00
 41 to 50 years  $122.00
 51 to 60 years  $142.00
 61 to 70 years  $162.00
 71 to 80 years  $182.00
 81 to 90 years  $202.00

The fee applies separately to each record requested. For example, the fee for a request consisting of one birth record (1-year search for $22.00), plus one death record (24-year search for $82.00), plus one marriage record (11-year search for $62.00) is a total of $166.00.
