Kalamazoo County
Vital Records

The Kalamazoo County Clerk/Register Office is staffed by volunteers from the Kalamazoo Valley Genealogical Society to assist the public with genealogical research.

Records Available

The following records are available for research in the Kalamazoo County Clerk/ Register's Office:

Birth Records, 1867 to present

Marriage Records, 1831 to present

Death Records, 1867 to present

All the above records are open to the public, with the exception of birth records.  However, if a person is deceased, an heir or descendant may access the person's birth record by providing a copy of the individual's death record.  The requestor must provide a copy of his/her own birth certificate for proof of relationship. If you are requesting a birth record 110 years old or older, a death record for that individual is not needed.

On-Line Access

Kalamazoo County vital records are also on-line through the efforts of Kalamazoo Genealogy.
