U.S. Courthouse Research
With Christine Rose, CG, CGL, FASG

Courthouses are places where you can find answers to genealogical problems. They are a rich source of written records created as a result of the laws, the time period, and personal activities of your ancestors. The steps delineated throughout this handout will assist you to be more effective as you visit courthouses in your search for genealogical information. To effectively use courthouse records you should:
1. Set a specific goal.
2. Prepare for the courthouse visit.
3. Find the correct courthouse office to visit
4. Ask the courthouse staff the right questions.
5. Search the indexes.
6. Find the record.
7. Abstract the original record and perhaps make a photocopy.
8. Use the information.
