What do you mean not everything is online?

If I had a dollar for every time a researcher said that phrase! Unfortunately, there’s a big misconception that you can find everything about your family history with one click of the mouse. Truth is, only a very small portion of records have been digitized and are available on the internet. You still need to visit the Archives to find the records you may have been missing. We have births, marriages, and death records. You can look through probate files, deeds, orphans court records, tax assessments, apprentice indentures, Bible records, family histories and church records. Why not take a minute and view our Collection Gateway to see if you can find any of your relatives? Stop in and see us. We would be happy to talk to you and show you the records you may have been missing.
