    The Arizona State Archives maintains collections from state, county and local government offices, boards and commissions as well as collections from private citizens and non-governmental groups. These records help document the official actions of state, county and local governments and the private lives and accomplishments of people and organizations in Arizona.

To learn more about the history and record-keeping systems of Arizona counties, use the inventories of the Maricopa, Pima, and Santa Cruz county archives published by the Historical Records Survey around 1940. These inventories are available at the Family History Library.
