    The Records Center and Archives is located on the 6th floor of the Reibold Building at Main and Fourth Streets and is reached by the elevator from the entrance at 117 South Main Street. Access to public records is facilitated by the staff in a designated research area. Over 25,000 records locations can be accessed by the staff using a computer-assisted index system. Unlike books in a public library, records may not be browsed or circulated. Public inspection and copying are available within the research area. Rules and procedures are posted to assist researchers. Although telephone requests for information cannot be answered, mail requests are accepted if the information supplied in the request is specific enough to justify a search. Mail inquiries should include as much information as possible (i.e. the full name of the person to be researched, types of records to be searched, relevant dates to be checked, etc.). Please do not send payment with a research request. A form will be sent to you advising you of the charges your request will incur.
