Our vital records date back to 1851, real estate records date back to 1851 as well.  We give informational tours of our office to area schools, Western Technical College, UW La Crosse and the Genealogical Society.  We offer customers who own real estate in La Crosse County Property Fraud Alert as a deterrent to fraud in this county.  We strive to keep your records safe and archived.
