Historical Information

Real Estate records in most counties date back to the 1800's. People pass through the local courthouses each year to research their genealogy. Old school house sites are sometimes notated on the plats, along with cemeteries, abandoned railroads and roads.

Some counties may have historical information regarding their Courthouse or County. Check with your local Auditor’s office for the availability of this type of history.
