Macoupin County was founded in 1829 and shortly thereafter, Tristrim P. Hoxey was elected the first County Clerk. Since then, there have been 27 County Clerks, each responsible for holding the County’s vital records in their custody. The County Clerk has made sure these documents have been protected for the individuals at the time of filing, but also for their families who later wish to see where their ancestors came from.
Macoupin’s current County Clerk, Pete Duncan, has worked with the County Clerk’s staff to make sure these treasured records are protected for history but still available for viewing today. Use the links below to find out more information about all the different types of vital records.
