Register of Wills - Birth and Death Records

Our Birth and Death Records are from 1893 through 1906.  You may obtain copies by sending in a written request to this office. A $4.00 Research fee (per name being researched) is required at the time of the request. A check or money order should be made payable to “Register of Wills”. Also include a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope.  There is a maximum of 3 names per request.

Be sure to include:

  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • A daytime telephone number
  • The name of the individual you are researching
  • A date or date range within 5 years if you are uncertain of the exact date
  • Please specify if you are requesting a birth or death record

We will do the research and advise you if the information is available. The cost of a birth record is $4 and the cost of the death record is $3. You will then need to send us a check or money order and we will forward the information to you.

After 1906, all records are stored in the Vital Record Division of the Department of Health in New Castle.  Feel free to visit their web site at www.health.state.pa.us.  Or contact them by phone at (724) 656-3100.
