Research Resources at the Wyoming State Archives

Incorporation records filed with county clerks and inactive corporation files of the Wyoming Secretary of State are included in the Archives' collections. Some licensing records from county clerk offices, as well as county assessor tax assessment rolls are also available. Business directories for some communities are available. A number of businesses and commercial organizations have donated their records.
Many old claim records and minutes of mining districts were filed with the county clerks and are available at the Archives. The reports of the office of the State Mine Inspector are also maintained. These include production reports for the state's coal mines, tabulated information on the mines, and reports on accidents. The Wyoming Mining Association collection contains publications dealing with mining issues affecting the industry in recent decades.

Personal research is also a popular activity at the State Archives. Many county and state records are used by people working on family history, tracking the chain of title to their property, renovating a commercial building or residence, or other research projects.

The Archives' historical photograph collection, oral histories, and numerous books and serial publications can also be used to research these topics.
