303.15  Certified copies--fees.

Upon request of a person, the state archivist shall make a certified copy of any document, manuscript, or record contained in the archives or in the custody of the state archivist unless reproduction is inappropriate because of legal, curatorial, or physical considerations. If a copy is properly authenticated it has the same legal effect as though certified by the officer from whose office it was obtained or by the secretary of state. The copy may be made in writing, or by a suitable photographic process. The state archivist shall charge and collect for copies the fees allowed by law to the official in whose office the document originates for certified copies. The state archivist shall charge a person requesting a search of census records for the purpose of determining genealogy the actual cost of performing the search.
