City Clerk & Office of Vital Statistics
The office of the City Clerk, in the historical tradition, serves as a direct link between the residents and their local government.  The City Clerk is responsible for the issuance of many licenses and permits including but not limited to Marriage Licenses, Dog Licenses, Peddler Permits. On this page you will find links to some of the forms that can be viewed and printed.  In addition, the City Clerk serves as Clerk to the Rome Common Council, which is the legislative branch of city government.
The Vital Statistics Office records births and deaths that occur within the City of Rome.  We have records dating back to the year 1882. Individuals doing family histories are able to obtain birth and death records of deceased family members.  These records are considered genealogy and are stamped for genealogy purposes only.
