Microfilm area

The east alcove of the reference room houses microfilm and microfiche as well as several reader/printers. Researchers may access the microforms and reader/printers as needed. Reference archivists are available to show researchers how to use the equipment.

The Reference Room


The east alcove of the reference room contains microfilm and microfiche as well as five reader/printers designed to handle both formats. Many of the microfilm records stored in the alcove are described in two sets of guides on the Archives Web site:

Legislative minutes and exhibits from 1947 to 1995 are available in microfilm and are documented as part of the Guide to Legislative Records.

A variety of census, death, marriage, divorce, and land records and indexes are available on microfilm and microfiche. These are further described in the "topical research aids" available in the reference room and also on the genealogy page of the Archives Web site.

Additional local, state, and federal agency records on microfilm are also available. These are documented in the microfilm index maintained in the reference room.
