Waupaca County Register of Deeds Michael Mazemke said his office will soon issue vital records from all 72 Wisconsin counties.
Statewide issuance of vital records allows register of deeds offices to issue records of birth, death, marriage, divorce from other counties, if the records are in the Statewide Vital Records Information System.
The statewide access to vital records begins Jan. 3, 2017.
Mazemke said not all vital records will be eligible for statewide issuance. Some special service records are excluded and not all records may be in the system and immediately available.
The State Vital Records office is working with registers of deeds to develop a process for loading specific vital records on demand until all historic records are converted.
Individuals should contact their local register of deeds for more information, Mazemke said.
