You don't have to feed a parking meter and brave Caddo Courthouse metal detectors to do at least one type of major public records search for free anymore.
People surfing online can comb through Caddo marriage license indices dating to at least the 1930s, a capability launched with no fanfare. Up to now, this had been part of the clerk's online subscription service targeted mainly at legal professionals. Now anyone with a home computer can do it.
"We started our subscription Web page about four years ago, and on July 1 started this as a test program," said Caddo Clerk of Court Gary Loftin, whose office is quite open and friendly to genealogists and others searching for public records. "We want to be as progressive as we can to help people get information 24 hours a day. It helps the public."
