Currently all documents contain an "Unofficial Document" watermark. We will soon be adding the ability to purchase documents without the watermark and are working on a method of securely delivering "Certified" documents.

If you cannot find your document using one of the above methods, please contact the appropriate department for assistance. There is no cost to search the electronic index, to view a document image or to print the document. There will be a "Unofficial Document" watermark on each page viewed and printed. Certified copies are not available on-line at this time; you will need to contact the appropriate department for purchase.

To obtain certified or non-certified copies (without the watermark), please visit the appropriate department in person or use the appropriate request/credit card authorization form from the list below:
