  • Each image has one record.

Description of the Records

  • Records were handwritten or typed on preprinted forms.
  • Marriage records have two sides to each form and both sides have information to be indexed.
  • Death records have two sides to each form, but the back has no information to be indexed, so it will be marked No Extractable Data Image.
