Before you go to that courthouse, make certain you have answered some questions:
- What are the hours?
- What are the research policies?
- What do things cost?
- What can you bring in?
- Are there any special holiday closings?
- Are all records onsite?
Don’t “just show up.” You may be disappointed if you do.
Consider asking a local researcher or someone who has been to the courthouse or facility before for advice.
