Records Management
The Franklin County Records Management office is NOT responsible for vital records.  To obtain birth, death or marriage records, contact the Clerk of the town or city where the birth, death or marriage occurred. You may also obtain records through the New York State Bureau of Vital Statistics.  They can be reached by calling (518) 474-3077 (New York State) or by visiting their website at 

Records Management is a subdivision within the County Clerk’s Office. The Records Management Office oversees records of all media content, created by county offices. The mission of the office is to ensure records are properly managed, retained in compliance with established retention schedules, and that records disposition is completed through a secure process. The Records Management Office also aides in the identification and preservation of historical/archival records, and provides assistance with genealogy and research requests.

Nearly 5,600 cubic feet of records from nearly all county departments are stored here. The department stores and retrieves records as requested by county departments.  On a monthly basis reports are ran to properly pull records that have reached their retention period.  Records which exceed the required retention are disposed of annually. 

The Department of Social Services is now located on Finney Blvd. and we have created an "off site" vault which is about 1,800 cubic feet that is also maintained by the Records Management Clerk.
