Do you have legal documents you would like to submit for inclusion here?
This Library of Documents can ONLY Grow with YOUR Help
Guests are encouraged to submit transcriptions for any County Wills, Deeds, Bible Records or other documents that will help other researchers. This site can only be its best if every one of the guests who use its resources is also willing to contribute what they have to it. I can not say this strongly enough - If you have such materials in your possession and can type, then this DOES mean YOU and YOUR records. I hear all the time from people who say they have this or that Bible record or  will or whatever and in spite of all the pleas and requests, they have not thought to type it up and send it in. This is a two way street. If you are willing to use resources from this all volunteer site, then you must be equally willing to give back your own resources. This is a cooperative venture and we must all chip in with what we have.  Yes, we do know how busy you are, but if you have time to come to the site to take what it offers, then you should also make an effort to find the time to give what you have in the way of historical documents.
