While I have done a good bit of research online, I have never been to the Jackson County courthouse. But I'm interested in going.
Can someone give me a little preliminary help by answering some questions?
1. What records are available?
2. Are old wills (1800's) available?
3. What information is needed to chain backwards in property records?
4. Are in the old property records in the Township Range format?
5. Where do you go for the older records?
6. Are there some days that are better to go?
7. This not a potential criticism but rather a fact of life question -- are the people involved helpful or would they rather you not bother them?
8. Is much of the stuff on MF where you might copy to Jump Drive, Memory Stick, etc?
Thanks a bunch.
