FHL Cards: Here a Courthouse, There a Courthouse, Everywhere a Courthouse

Knowing what you are looking at is crucial to evaluating genealogical information.

Campbell County, Kentucky, has two courthouses. Many of the county’s records have been microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and are available on microfilm at the Family History Library or online digitally. Some of the card catalog descriptions of microfilmed materials do not make it clear the courthouse where the originals were located.

But those title cards.

Those title cards do.

These marriage bonds (which actually aren’t all marriage bonds as mentioned in an earlier post) were microfilmed at Campbell County’s Alexandria, Kentucky, courthouse.

Now I know which courthouse.

And know you know why those title cards matter.
