The following ongoing project is a collection of indexes created from old assessment rolls, school records, statements of land, vital records, and possibly other resources by volunteers: Amy Banka, Suzette Bromley, Marian Greig, Katherine Korth, Janet Kruger, Nick Lucas, Kay Mitchell, Jack Radike, Lynne Secory, Kathy Shaeffer, Lois Wedge and Helen Whiting. Please keep in mind that names could be misspelled due to illegible writing within the pages of these books and were transcribed as they appear.

These resources can be viewed by appointment at the:
