Get Advice from a Local

Sometimes what you need to help you in your research is not someone who will have to travel fifty miles to do your research, but someone who is actually from the area itself. Sometimes what you need is someone who has researched records in that courthouse for several years, is familiar with the staff, and knows how to find records in that repository that are not inventoried and are not organized. A researcher from a distance may not have that advantage.

Even if that person doesn't do any research for you, they may be able to give you the best guidance there is for those local records.
