    1. This is the original record from the Washington County, Kentucky, County Clerk’s office. They are in a file folder by date in a locked room. Since I have been there for 40+ years doing research they trust me to handle these records carefully. These copies are from the original records – fragile, faded records from the late 1700’s.

Any thoughts?
