CALIFORNIA COUNTY CLERK RECORDERS

CALIFORNIA COUNTY CLERK RECORDERS

Here are a few tips that will help when ordering when ordering certificates by mail:

1.  Make sure to check the box requesting an "Informational Copy."  It is exactly the same as a regular certified copy except it has the words "Informational Copy Only" stamped across the page.  
2.  If  the application ask for the reason for the request make sure to write "For Genealogical Purposes."
3.  Always send a copy (both sides) of your current drivers license or state ID even if they don't ask for it
4.  Always send a money order or cashiers check - most counties will not accept an out of state check

Turn around time for most counties is about 14 working days.
