Rock County Genealogical Society
Earliest Rock County Court House Vital Records
Earliest Recorded Entry by Each Letter of the Alphabet

How this table is organized:
Wisconsin vital records were not systematically collected at the county courthouse level until 1907. Earlier records, though haphazzard and incomplete, are collectively numerous. The purpose of this data table is to demonstrate the earliest year for which vital records exist. It is organized alphabetically by the first letter of surnames listed. For Birth and Death records, the table below inticates the earliest year for which an entry exists within the Rock County, Wisconsin Court House. The Marriage records begin in 1840, but they have not been alphabetized. Often subsequent entries for a particular letter of the alphabet do not appear until much later (for instance, the first and second Death entries within the D section of this table appear 19 years apart). Where a significant gap exists between first and second entries, a date range is reported (for example, 1852/1871 is shown for the death entries within the D section).
