The Franklin County Archives' Research Room is open to serve the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Browse the Archives' online selection or plan your research visit using Our Catalog. This new catalog is not a complete listing of the nearly seven miles of records in our new Records Center; rather, it describes the records most commonly used by the public. We add digitized records and images to the catalog every day. Please contact staff if you don’t see a listing for the type of records you seek - we would love to help you find what you need.
To search an assortment of select, digitized Birth, Marriage, Death, Estate, Land and Tax Records, visit our online repository.
Enjoy digital access to some of our local history books, timelines, story maps, exhibits and blog posts here.
