York County Government Looks to Preserve History for All to See
"York County government possesses thousands of records - like those housed in the Registry of Deeds, which are received and recorded and already available online. But there are other records too, and some of them are fascinating.
The York County Registry of Deeds meticulously maintains permanent, legal records of deeds and mortgages and the like. Such documents are received and recorded and are available to see and read online. But there are other records, thousands of pages of documents stored at the courthouse. Some were found in boxes labeled “keep forever.”
And while the county has always been involved in record preservation efforts, there is a move on to do more." - Tammy Well, Press Herald
