Don't Be Duped- Order Copies of Birth, Death, Marriage Certificates Yourself

County Clerk Wyckoff advises against using expensive online services for expediting your vital certificate applications as you can obtain the same record from their office at a much lower cost.

Those entitled to obtain certified or genealogical copies should order Lake County birth, death, marriage, or civil union records safely and securely from their office. Some online vendors charge ten times more than their published fees and ultimately send your order to them to be fulfilled. Protect your wallet and identity by ordering directly from the county clerk. Click here for more information.
