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, they are only available in hard copy 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, the courts have retained the indices in most cases and will need the county, name of the court and docket or case number to locate the file.
