                Loose Records Collection

                The loose records collection consists of all the original loose documents before they were recorded in large volumes.  These records were located at the courthouse until 1988 when they were transferred to the Lawrence County Archives.  The archives staff has sorted and cleaned the records that cover the time period 1818-1909 for both county and chancery court.  Indexes have been created through 1899, and the indexing of the 1900-1909 time period is in the process. All these records are available for the general public to use for research purposes.  As time permits, the staff will process records through 1950 (marriages through 2000) and it will be announced on this web page.           

         Books and Microfilm

                Besides these records and their indexes, the archives has many books on various subjects.  Some of these are listed below.  A complete inventory of all the books available for researchers to use while on-site can be found at this web site: http://home.lorettotel.net/~lcarchives/lawrbknv.htm. Microfilm is available for records in some courts as far up as the late 1990's, for other records only through 1950's.
