Copies are sent by e-mail (please print e-mail address) or add $1.00 postage for every 10 documents ordered. Certified copies are $5.00. Chancery & Probate Court “loose” files require a special quote for copying as they are several pages long and can only be copied as a unit. We are authorized to copy only Limestone County government records that appear on our index printout. This excludes census records, newspaper articles (not appearing on the index), family files or documents from the private collections. Enlistment and discharge records are available from the Probate Judge’s Office.
Copies of photographs can be obtained for a non-refundable fee – $3 (4X6), $6 (5X7), $12 (8X10), or $3 for a JPEG. Photographs with a page number beginning with PH may not be available.
Allow 2 to 4 weeks for processing after remittance. Due to restrictions and our limited staff, we cannot do research. You may need to contact a researcher for further assistance.
