The deceased executor, attorney or legal agent

You must attach a copy of your identification showing you are an authorized requestor along with a copy of a valid driver’s license.
Paternity Acknowledgement: a legal document that lets unmarried parents name the natural father and establish paternity for the child. Both parents sign the affidavit, in the presence of a public notary and completing the form is voluntary. Only the natural parents should sign the affidavit. If you are unsure who the natural father is, don’t sign it. Establishing paternity by DNA testing might be a better option.
Notary: Our employees have Ohio Notary Commissions and are available to notarize documents free of charge. We reserve the right to refuse this service if proper identification is not available or if the document has been improperly completed. Service is at the discretion of the Notary on duty.
Genealogy Research: Our staff is available for searches during working hours. However, extensive searches are conducted as time allows. We do accept requests for research through the mail and will return information requested as soon as time allows. No copies of documents are issued. If you require a legal document, a State certified certificate will be issued.
