  • To search our records on-line please begin by clicking the second menu button to the left "search records on-line (register / login)". Every document ever recorded in our office since the birth of our County in 1752 is contained as a computerized image and index on this website. However we have preserved all original record books of handwritten and typed transcriptions from the years 1752 to 1953.  From 1953 through 2004 the original records were retained on microfilm, and after that by scanned image backed up on microfilm.  From 2004 to present day, our records are retained digitally with electronic backup.
