The County Assessor/Recorder/Clerk, Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr., provides an optional service to the public when looking for a special gift or remembrance keepsake. Individuals who were born in San Diego County or obtained a marriage license here can purchase a decorative wedding, anniversary or birth keepsake suitable for framing.

The wedding and anniversary keepsakes are adorned with a silver seal. The birth memento entitled "San Diego Native" is embossed with a gold seal. It has a silhouette of a sleeping baby in the background and comes in either pink or blue. These commemorative, 8 x 10 inch documents are being sold for $6.00 each and make excellent gifts.

These keepsakes are for souvenir purposes only and people who need an official document for identification purposes can purchase a certified copy of either a birth or marriage certificate through this office.

Please note if a confidential marriage license was issued, only the couple may request a keepsake. If you are mailing in the request, you will need to submit a notarized statement of identity along with the application.

To place your order, you can mail in the application, or call our mail office at (619) 237-0502 for personal assistance. You can also view samples and order the keepsakes at any of the following branches: East County Office & Archives, San Marcos and at the County Administration Center, Room 260.
