I plan on visiting White county to research my husband's father's side of the family. I plan on visiting the court house and historical society in Searcy, and I would appreciate some assistance/insight into what I can expect to find. Are records kept on microfilm with search capabilities or will I be searching through books and actual documents? I will be looking for birth/death/marriage records primarily. What records does the historical society have available? I will also be looking for cemeteries ~ are there listings of burials for the local cemeteries? If so, where are these held? Any library(ies) I should visit also? Thank you in advance for any help/assistance you can provide. Best regards, Kathy Ward
