== What is in This Collection? ==
 
The collection includes the following various county records:
 
*Coroner's Inquests (1793-1905)
*Voter Registration Books (1888-1896)
*Guardianships (1849-1967)
*Estates (1854-1968)
 
Soon after they were formed, counties began recording vital records, court records, and land transactions. The records are generally well preserved. The records were made to establish legal rights and to help track the population for health and taxation purposes. Most of the records are either handwritten or handwritten on printed forms. The information is generally reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant. Some transcription errors may have occurred.
