A Birth Register has been kept from 1886 through the 1970s. Lincoln County births BEFORE 1919, searchable by father's name, mother's name and child's name, are available online.
Lookups for births AFTER 1919 are available from Tracee Hamilton, who can search those records for father's name, mother's name and child's name. When submitting a request to Tracee, put "Lincoln County Birth" in the subject line of your email. (Due to privacy concerns the list coordinators do not feel comfortable making the more current information available online.)
Marriage records are available beginning about 1871 at the Clerk of the District Court's office at the Lincoln County Courthouse. Those records have been indexed on a computer by the surnames of both the bride and groom. To request a search or a copy of a marriage record, contact: Clerk of the District Court
Lincoln County Courthouse
216 E. Lincoln
Lincoln, KS 67455
The clerk will notify you of the cost of your search. Copies from this office are 25 cents apiece.
Some little-known records are those kept at City Hall, in the same book in which births and deaths were recorded. Those marriages cover the years 1886-88 and 1899-1902. These do not differ from the marriages at the courthouse, except that the form for recording these was much more detailed and includes information like parents' names and previous marriages.
Marriages reported by Lincoln County newspapers from March 1873 to 1879, the 1880s, 1890-94 and 1895-99 have been transcribed as well.
