Copy fees are $.65 per page, except Marriage Records, which are $5.00 per Certificate - with all checks made payable to Franklin County Clerk. NOTE: All birth, death and marriage records are typically held by the local municipality (not at the County level) where a birth, death or marriage would have taken place. NYS recorded these records from 1847-1850 and then again 1880-present. A few town and village clerks recorded straight through from 1847-present. Other municipalities suffered loss of vital records in fires. Therefore, for an exact listing of "who has what", you must contact the individual Clerk and/or the Dept. of Health in Albany.
