Family History Searches

Make a Request

The County Recorder’s office does family history searches in Ramsey County for those making a request by mail  at 524 4th Avenue NE or by email. The search fee is $25 per hour after the first hour (in most cases, a search will not take more than 1 hour). Records searched include marriages and real property. Searches are completed as we have time.

If you are making a request, please provide as much information as possible including all names you want searched as well as any dates you may have. You may obtain copies of any and all documents for a fee of $1 per page. Payment for the search fee (if applicable) and copies must be received before the copies are mailed.

Birth and Death records can be obtained from the Division of Vital Records in Bismarck, ND. You can print your request from the forms listed below or go online to North Dakota Department of Health.
