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 and they are available for inspection in our office. From 1953 through 2004 the original records were retained on microfilm also available for inspection, and after that by scanned image backed up on microfilm.
