The Arkansas History Commission in Little Rock, in cooperation with the Genealogical Society of Utah, announces the completion of the microfilming of records for Monroe County in eastern Arkansas. The filming is part of a microfilming project began in 1976 that has copied early county records from all courthouses in Arkansas. Projects like this preserve historical material by reproducing the records on 35mm microfilm. It also makes the information more accessible by placing the film at additional locations such as the Arkansas History Commission in Little Rock and the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Including in this filming, at the courthouse in Clarendon, are marriage records dating from 1922 to 1951, Chancery Court records dating from 1890 to 1928, deed records dating from 1886 to 1901, and Tax Deeds from 1885 to 1905. Eventually, this microfilm will be added to the Monroe County records already in the History Commission’s collection.
