July 13 - Burned Courthouses

July 13 – Burned courthouses throw up a major brick wall. Find out what exactly the fire destroyed and look for substitute resources. Marsha Hoffman Rising suggests alternatives in the The Family Tree Problem Solver.

I like to remind people that sometimes copies of county records were also sent to state offices. Check to see if the state archives has any of those county records that might have been destroyed by a fire at the county level.
