Locality: Town of Fishkill
You can visit the office of the clerk and you may get a vital record the same day you request it, in most instances, but NOT always. Proof of ID, such as a driverís license, is required.
You may request vital records in person, by mail, by e-mail, and by fax.
Please include SASE.
A vital record for genealogy purposes is usually sent to you as abstracted information filled in on a standard form; upon request an exact transcript of the original will be sent. For death records, a photocopy of the original entry is sent.
Requests are handled as they arrive; response may be slowed during busy times of the year (e.g., when hunting licenses are being sold).
