Houston Public Records

Houston County is a large county in Georgia that is currently enjoying exponential growth. As of the 2010 census, the total population for the county was 139,900, but Houston County has continued to grow since that time. Located in the center of the state, this county was originally founded in 1821, so it boasts a rich southern history that dates back generations. Finding Houston County public records reveal a small segment of that history, through documents commemorating the births, deaths and marriages that have taken place within the boundaries of the county.

To launch a successful Houston County, GA public records search, keep these factors in mind:

  • Houston County birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates can be requested in person, by mail or online.
  • Access to some of these Houston public records is restricted under state law.
  • Requests for certified copies of public records in Houston County require identification from the researcher.
  • Fees are assessed for copies; fee schedules are posted on the appropriate government websites.
  • Records may be searched and retrieved from both county and state sources.
  • How to Access Houston County Public Records Search

    Like many states across the U.S., Georgia public records law regulates who may access these government documents.  Both birth and death certificates are limited to the persons on the certificate, immediate family members or legal representatives of any of these parties.

    In the case of Houston County death records, access restrictions primarily apply to medical information on the certificate, such as the cause of death. Members of the general public are able to access information that gives the name and date of death on individuals who died within Houston County.

    Houston County marriage records are also available to the general public, although copies of marriage license applications are only available to the bride and groom.
