Records from the Past "Found" Recently

Tuesday's Tip
See we told you so ... records from the past can still be "found" today so Don't Give Up.

We spotted a mention of this on Dick Eastman's blog this morning and I think it is a good follow up to our Tuesday's Tip post from December 29, 2015.

An archivist at the clerk's office for Vanderburgh County, Indiana, recently discovered by accident records from the county's formation in 1818. The earliest records the clerk's office has handled prior to this were from 1819. The varied documents were stored in metal boxes labeled "Miscellaneous." Here's the link to the original story over at Tristate.

So again our Tuesday's Tip is to review what you already have ... and don't judge a book (or box in this case) by its label -- LOOK INSIDE!

See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
