All the above records are open to the public, with the exception of birth records. Birth records were closed several years ago by the State of Michigan. However, if a person is deceased, an heir or descendant may access the personās birth record by completing an "Affidavit of Heir" form and providing a copy of the individual's death record (if requesting a birth record 110 years old or older, a death record for that individual is not needed).
Searches by mail: Searches by mail will be conducted as staff time permits. For mail requests, fill out the GENEALOGY SEARCH REQUEST FORM, and mail it to St. Joseph County Clerk with the appropriate fee. Results of the search are hand-copied on a Vital Record Form.
