Van Buren County, named for Martin Van Buren when he was Secretary of State rather than President, has fairly limited hours and space available for vital records researchers. Only open to walk-ins on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:30AM until 3:00PM, the genealogy research area has capacity for two researchers at a time, and space is allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Appointments can be scheduled for time periods inside that window, as well as other days. For a small fee, office staff can verify records as well as perform searches. Birth records, which become public record when older than 100 years, and death records are available from 1867 to the present. Marriage records are kept from 1836, and divorce records from 1857, both to the present. For additional information, individuals are referred to the Van Buren Regional Genealogical Society
, which has a massive amount of resources on their website.
