Better Know a Repository: Boone County Clerk's Office

The Boone County Clerk's Office is on the first floor of the Boone County Administration Building in the photo. It houses many important original sources for Boone County researchers, including land records (from 1799), probate records (from 1800), and marriages (from 1799).
For the latest contact information and office hours, see their website: Boone County Clerk's Office.

Their old record collection is kept in the basement. Many, if not most, records are bound in large ledger books that can be examined and copied. A copy machine is available or if you prefer photography is allowed. There are a couple of tables with space to spread out and get some work done.

Here is a Google Map for this location:
