Statistics include birth, death and marriage records.
The Clay County Recorder’s Office has records from the 1870's
to present. Anyone can
purchase plain copies of birth, death or marriage records but
must prove “tangible interest” to obtain certified copies of
birth or death records. See
Tangible Interest on the Recorder Vital
Statistics page for more information.
Marriage and death records are open to the public for viewing during regular business hours.
Birth indexes for the entire state of Minnesota (1935 - present) can be viewed on a public computer in the Clay County Recorder’s Office. To obtain information about birth records prior to 1935 for Clay County births, contact the Clay County Recorder by mail, fax or e-mail. See the Vital Statistics Fee Schedule for research fees.
The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County has microfilm of the marriage and death indexes that can be viewed during their business hours.
