When doing research at a local courthouse, it is generally a good idea to call ahead and find out what records are available, hours of operation, the format the records are in and what are the copying fees.  But who do you call? 

The folks at County Clerk Court Records have that all sorted out for you.  At their site you will find a listing of over 3000 county clerk offices with contact information and addresses.  This is handy information to have when planning a trip to do some research!  A big kudos to the folks that put this information together.
