Local vital records office statewide issuance

The Waushara County Register of Deeds Office recently announced that statewide issuance of vital records becomes effective Jan. 3, 2017.

Statewide issuance of vital records allows the register of deeds offices to issue records of birth, death, marriage, divorce, from all Wisconsin counties, IF the records are enabled in the Statewide Vital Records Information System.

Not all vital records will be eligible for statewide issuance – some small numbers of special service records are excluded. For those that are eligible, not all may be in the system and available for statewide issuance as of Jan. 3, 2017. 

The State Vital Records Office is working with register of deeds offices to develop a process for loading specific vital records on demand until all historic records are converted. Individuals should contact their local register of deeds to receive more information about statewide issuance.

The statewide issuance will aid in providing an easier and more efficient method for serving our customers, as well as provide better access to Wisconsin vital records. 

The Register of Deeds Office appreciates the  support and patience as the employees works through the implementation of this new service.
