Calhoun County Clerk and Register of Deeds, Kimberly A. Hinkley, is pleased to announce that vital records—including Birth, Death, and Marriage records—are now available online. This new service is part of a larger effort to improve access to records and increase efficiencies within the office. This new customized feature is an extension of the recently launched online Marriage License Application process. To access the Vital Records online portal, please visit calhouncountymi.gov/vitalrecords.
Previously, the process of obtaining vital records included printing request forms and emailing or mailing them to the office, or visiting the office in person. While these options are still available, the online process will reduce the number of steps necessary to obtain records.
The Clerk’s Office only has records of births, deaths and marriages which took place in Calhoun County, specifically. Additionally, Concealed Pistol License Applications, Renewals, Veteran Identification Cards and Land Document Recordings may be filed in person in the Marshall Office.
Clerk Hinkley and her staff have been working on this project over the last nine months with the software vendor Kofile, a division of GovOS. This expansion of services was paid for by ARPA allocated funds, as approved by the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners.
