Dickson County Records at the Dickson County Library

by on Friday, October 17th, 2003

We also invite everyone to come visit us. The collection has been greatly increased (using funds from the last budget year, earmarked for this area in particular) and has finally been processed and shelved. The cataloging system has been completely redone; all books pertaining to any o­ne county are shelved together, a major plus for all of us genealogists.

Among the new materials are microfilms of all available death certificates as well as a subscription to Ancestry Plus.

We also urge you to get a library card or renew yours if it doesn't have a barcode. Unfortunately in the current political climate our library is considered of value o­nly to those Dickson County residents who hold current cards. So come visit our new collection and update your library card at the same time. We'd love to see you.

Micro-film o­n some old county records
