Available Genealogical Records
About the Office
The DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder’s Office, located in Sycamore, Illinois, is the archival home for the entire County’s Vital Records system. Since 1837, our office has protected these documents for individuals, their families, and their interests.
With the revolution of online 24/7 access, the Office is making available all Genealogical Records for public inspection on this platform. State Statutes make all Birth Certificates over 75 Years, Marriage Licenses older than 50 years, Death Certificates older than 20 years and Naturalization Certificates older than 100 years, available for public inspection.
DeKalb County’s Genealogy Online allows visitors to search for free and the opportunity to purchase the actual record we have on file in a digital format.
All records are unofficial, as they are not certified for the County, and they remain for personal use in research of ancestral records.
Enjoy the opportunity to explore your history, and thank you for visiting!
