The County Clerk's office has excellent and complete birth, death, and marriage records, as well as land records. The Genealogical Library has given them a typed alphabetical listing of Deaths and Marriages, making the actual record easier to find. Courtesy of Rootsweb.
The Circuit Clerk has moved almost all of their record books to the attic of the courthouse and are not accessible. Unfortunately this includes divorce records, foreclosures, etc. The Probate records are easily accessible but be sure to go to the Genealogical Library for the typed alphabetical index to the Probates. The Circuit Clerk's office doesn't have an index for the files. Courtesy of Rootsweb.
