The importance of public records could not be stressed enough. These little pieces of documents and papers are often the best evidence that one could use in order to prove something, and there are certain proceedings and transactions that only accepts public records as evidence. When all of these is taken into consideration, it is easy to see why the requirements of practicality means that the collection known as the Tehama County Public Records should be available to the public at all times. After all, it is this collection where public records are kept and it is this collection that has to be searched when a person wishes to request for a copy of a public record.

As public records are considered to be important, a person who wishes to have one could only have a copy. This is not only to make sure that another person could have a copy of the same record, but also for reasons of posterity, after all, public records would soon form part of history. Note that there are two general classifications of records, vital records and non-vital records. For non-vital records, there is only one type of copy, but for vital records, there are two, informational and authorized copies. Informational copies and authorized copies contain the same information, but the former could not establish identity while the latter is restricted only to a few people identified by the law.

Requests for non-vital records are conducted only at the office of the clerk-recorder, and the person making the request actually has to be at the office to make a personal request. Once permission had been given, the searcher may search the records himself or he may either ask for help or ask the staff to do the search. Once the record had been located, a copy of the same would be made upon request and after payment of the required copying fee which is one dollar per page.

Requests for vital records are different and somewhat more complicated. At the county level, through the office of the clerk-recorder, it is possible for the searcher to do a personal request, but at the state level, through the California Department of Public Health, the request must be through the mail. The county level also has a method of requesting through the mail, and the procedure for the two levels are somewhat the same. First, the searcher downloads the relevant form from the website of either the office or the department. Note that the department has two types of forms, one for informational and the other for authorized copy. There is only one form at the county level but one must have it notarized if requesting for an authorized copy. Once the form had been completed, the next step would be to determine the required fee which range from twenty five dollars to fourteen dollars and to make a money order for the same. Finally, the requirements would have to be sent to the office or the department, as the case may be, for processing.

Another source of public records is online databases and these proliferate the World Wide Web. Aside from being easy to locate, because there are many of them, and easy to use, these databases also provide the same information as the two offices mentioned above, but a search using these databases are faster and more efficient, with a great majority of these databases providing their information without charge. As with all internet searches, using online databases require that the searcher to have an internet connection, a computer, and, only if a hard copy is necessary, a printer, though that could be handled by an internet café. Generally, there is no need to fall in line or even to leave the home.
