Before Your Research Trip: Plan

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?
  • etc.

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.
