Mission statement:


A.    To provide the official county repository for:

a.    *Real estate records (deeds, land contracts, mortgages, etc)

b.    *Vital records (birth, death, marriage, domestic partnerships and military discharges)

B.    To provide safe archival storage and convenient access to these public records.

C.    To implement statutory changes, system modernization, program and procedure evaluation and staff development to assure a high level of timely customer service for our citizens.



We supply the application form for vital records. We can supply the website address to complete an online transfer return for real estate conveyances. We have information on where to obtain birth, death and marriage certificates for those counties outside of La Crosse but in Wisconsin and also nationwide, by State. We distribute fee schedules & do miscellaneous surveys relative to real estate recordings and uniform commercial code filings. There are fee schedules for distribution. We have informational tours that we provide for local area schools including Western Wisconsin Technical College, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and the Genealogical Society.
