Vital records are handled by the County Orphan's Court. Between the years 1852-1855 Pennsylvania made a failed attempt to record birth, marriage and death events at the county level. While the records for that time period are available, there were few events recorded. County marriage records were kept in ernest in 1885. Births and deaths, at the county level, were begun in 1893 and kept through 1905.

Use substitute records for birth, marriage and death information. These substitute records includeBible Records, Cemeteries, Church Records, Newspapers, and Probate Records.
