The Whole Thing…Not Just the Page

When making requests of copies of local records, make certain to ask for the entire record. Some indexes will provide the first page number of the location where the item is recorded, but may make no mention of how many pages the record actually entails. Some records are only one page, but best to ask for the entire record–just in case.

Otherwise a clerk may take you literally and give you the page you ask for which may not always be the complete record.
