Databases & Inventories

The databases and inventories below are designed to help you navigate our large collection of records. At this time, we do not have an online card catalog-style database for our entire collection and though many of our record series have an index, like birth, marriage and death certificates, land records and corporation records, research copies are only available on microfilm in the reading room.

If you are researching a court case, please contact the court first. While we do house many cases from around the state, most of the courts have retained the indices and we will need the county, name of the court and docket or case number to locate the file.
