Good Afternoon,

The Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder does not have a way of filtering for death certificates for Native Americans and Alaskan Native individuals. Also, all purchasing of death certificates must go through our normal business process and the statutory fees must be paid for each document. Below is the link to the process to search and purchase any specific requests that you would like to pursue:

Birth, Death, and Marriage Certificates

Thank you,
