Schoharie County Clerk Information
The County Clerk and Records Management Offices hold various records that may be useful for research purposes. Census records can be a good resource, however, if the town in which the ancestor was born is not known, it can become difficult to complete a search. Deed and mortgage records, in some circumstances, can be helpful in determining the town of origin for family members. Records can be accessed through either the public resource computers within the County Clerk’s Office, through the County Clerk online search system (link is posted on Clerk’s Office homepage), or requests submitted to the office to conduct a search. There is a $5.00 fee per name, plus an additional $0.50 per copy of any records requested that the office is able to reproduce. In the event that the office is not able to provide a copy of the record, a “Certificate of Census Record” will be issued at the cost of a photocopy. Requests may be submitted to the Records Management mailing address listed above, along with a check payable to “Schoharie County Clerk”.
An inquiry system has been made possible by the office of the Clerk. The purpose of the Inquiry System is to help you locate document information and then, if available, to view an image of that document. Please note, our criminal searches are no longer available online but can be viewed at the public terminals in the county clerk office. The Image of the Original Document, if available, should always be checked against the Index Information contained in the Inquiry System. The link of the stated site can be seen below:
