Birth, Death, Marriage Information and Applications

We issue certified copies of birth, marriage, death and military discharge certificates for those records found in La Crosse County only. If you were born outside of La Crosse County, it is likely your certificate will not be found here.  If you conclude the record you are looking for is not here, try these links:

YOU MUST HAVE A DIRECT AND TANGIBLE INTEREST IN THE CERTIFICATE YOU ARE REQUESTING. Generally, this means the immediate family only, i.e., spouse, parent, child, brother, sister or grandparent.

If you are able to come into the office, hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will receive over-the-counter, same day service. Please bring cash if traveling from outside of La Crosse County and some form of identification. Birth records are currently $20, death records are $20, and marriage records are $20. Each additional copy of the same record, purchased at the same time, is $3. There is no limit to quantity.

If requesting your certificate by mail, please use the application provided herewith. Fill in the applicant information (including signature), relationship, number of copies, and the area for whichever vital record you are requesting. One form will be needed for each individual record you are requesting. The address is:

La Crosse County Register of Deeds Office
Administrative Center, Room 1220
400 North 4th St.

We require a money order or a cashier's check for all mail requests if you live outside of La Crosse County. Make these payable to Register of Deeds. DO NOT send a personal check. It will be returned to you for replacement. Also, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. All requests that meet the required criteria will be processed and mailed the same day the request is received.
