The pages linked below provide access to nearly 200 pre-established catalog searches. Included are lists by record group (e.g., a department of state government, a county or municipality) and by subject (e.g., Civil War, railroads, etc.). The "Genealogical Holdings" and "Other Research Topics" links provide additional subject access to these pages.

Over 1,000 guides to collections are linked to the catalog entries.

Please note that if you plan to visit the State Archives, the retrieval and research use of manuscripts and other original records will only be possible from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

All microfilm and book collections will remain available from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The reduction of public hours for manuscript research has become necessary due to a shortage of staff. We sincerely regret any resulting inconvenience.
