Local Records at the State Facility?

When was the last time you checked the appropriate state or provincial website to see if they had compiled indexes or finding aids to records you could use?

Many state or provincial level archives have created finding aids or partial indexes to records in their collection.

Some of these are indexes to state or provincial records and some are indexes to local records that have been deposited with state or provincial authorities.


  1. Oh funny -- I see one of my ancestors in your sample image. I was looking at chancery records at Library of Virginia just last night, as a matter of fact.

  2. The Benjamin Hawkins listed is probably my Benjamin Hawkins. So we're probably related ;-)
