Welcome to the Office of the St. Louis City Recorder of Deeds and Vital Records Registrar. Our job is to make history every day- by placing documents on the public record- and make that history accessible to you and generations to come.
The City's Recorder/Registrar maintains nearly 250 years of public records history on the people and property of St. Louis. Most of the records in our care must be preserved in perpetuity. Some records are closed records with limited access.
We provide a library rich in documentation of family relationships, real estate transactions, incorporations by businesses and nonprofits, and much more, primary source records for genealogists and scholarly researchers.
The City's Recorder/Registrar office is the only office in Missouri providing one-stop shopping for birth, death, land, and marriage records. Please visit us at www.stlouiscityrecorder.org to download forms and get specific information on the services we can provide you assistance with.
We look forward to providing you with services because it is a pleasure to do our job.
