Cook County, located in the far northeast corner of Minnesota, shares more border space with another country, namely Canada, and bodies of water, Lake Superior, than it does with the actual state it is located in. It is a largely rural, outdoors style county with the small population of only 5,100 people. In addition to the County Recorder, who is responsible for the receiving, indexing, and distributing of the county's vital records, the Cook County Historical Society
provides resources for and help with genealogical research. The Society also offers their online database
which contains results taken from archives, newspapers, actual records, and other sources. The Cook County Recorder provides access to two programs
which allow users to search through property records. One program is subscription based, and the other runs on a per-search fee basis. Forms
to apply for birth and death certificates are made available on the Recorder website, as well.
