COLLECTIONS & ARCHIVES
CURRENT ONLINE COLLECTIONS
The Cox Library Archival Records System converts the manual process of research to a digital web-based workflow system that eliminates a traditional paper trail form of investigation. This not only greatly increases the longevity of the original documents being researched, but also makes research time more efficient.
There are currently four major starting points built into our system to begin your research. You may begin your search through our Andrew Johnson Collection, a single cemetery, a genealogical name index or through a tangible item such as a marriage record or court document. Each avenue has the ability be cross-referenced and will lead you to every item or person linked. For example, by simply perusing through a marriage record, you’ll see all the individuals tied to that specific document and if applicable, you’ll also see where the individuals are interred. Over time, more categories will be added, further expanding your search results.
Each category is also searchable by name or keyword. Only items that have been digitized and cataloged to date are available online. Items and information will be added frequently. Check the WHAT’S NEW page on our website for updates.
* These collections have been funded with Federal support through the National Historical Publications & Records Commission sponsored by the National Archives.
