Vital Records



The Wisconsin Pre-1907 Birth, Death and Marriage Index is available on microfiche at Wisconsin State Historical Society. Madison and their Area Research Centers, the LDS Family History Center and possibly even your local library. This index is also available online at Ancestry and LDS Family History Library.

Wisconsin Death Index 1959-1979 This is an online searchable microfiche index. The site includes directions on how to search this index..

RESEARCH TIP: While searching for vital records remember that Oneida County was not formed until 1885. What we know today as Oneida county was Portage County until 1850;   Marathon County from 1850 to 1874; and Lincoln County from 1874 to 1885. You may need to also search in these other counties.

In 1893, Oneida County's underwent significant change when the northwest corner was joined with part of Ashland County to form Iron County and an even greater portion of the northern part of the county went to form Vilas County

The Oneida County Register of Deeds has birth, death, marriage and land records. Birth, death or marriage certificates are $20 (additional copies of the same certificate, ordered at the same time, $3).

Research Tip: Counties were not required to send copies of all vital records to the state until October 1907 so the most complete set of vital records will be found at the Register of Deeds office, not the state office.
