Nevada County Fees Waived for Records Lost in Recent California Fires

On November 8th, Acting Governor Gavin Newsom issued an emergency proclamation for Butte County due to the effects of the Camp Fire, and on November 9th, Acting Governor Gavin Newsom issued an emergency proclamation for Los Angeles and Ventura Counties due to the effects of the Hill and Woolsey Fire. These recent fires have threatened critical infrastructure, thousands of homes and other structures, and has caused the evacuation of residents.


Fees Waived for State of Emergency

Pursuant to these proclamations of a State Emergency, the Nevada County Clerk-Recorder will be suspending any and all fees for certified copies of birth, death and marriage records for any individual who lost such records as a result of the wildfires. This suspension of fees will remain in effect until the Governor terminates the State of Emergency.


How to Retrieve New Records

The Nevada County Clerk-Recorder is located at 950 Maidu Avenue in Nevada City, California. When requesting free certified copies of birth, death and marriage records, survivors of the fires should state on their application, "Wildfire", and complete a sworn statement declaring under penalty of perjury that they are a survivor. The sworn statement for wildfire survivors is a combined sworn statement which also includes the sworn statement required by Health and Safety Code Section 103526.

The application and combined sworn statement must be submitted to complete the request.

Please help us get this message out to survivors of the fires. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact our office at (530) 265-1221.
