The Archives Department
The Archives Department is responsible for keeping the record of a case once the case has been ruled upon by the judge. The record is double checked for accuracy and all scanned documents from the case are placed on microfilm and stored either in the department or at our off site storage location.
In addition to this, we respond to records requests for cases and documents which were filed prior to 2008. Upon request, we print copies of these documents, such as old divorce decrees or criminal sentencing entries, and either hold the copies for the customer to pick up or send them to the customer through the mail. The cost of the documents is $0.10 per page. There is an additional $2.00 fee for certifying each document (if the customer requires certified copies) and a $3.00 fee for paying with a credit card. Furthermore, should the customer require we send the document through the mail, there is an additional cost for postage at the current postage rates. The Archives Department can be reached directly at (330) 722-9328.
The Archives Department does not maintain copies of marriage licenses or birth certificates. The Probate Court is responsible for information regarding marriage licenses, and they can be reached online at http://www.medinaprobate.org/ or by phone at (330) 725-9703. The Health Department can help you obtain copies of birth certificates, and they can be reached online at https://medinahealth.org/birth-and-death/birth-certificates/ or by phone at (330) 723-9688.
