Wouldn't it be nice if more counties were like that???County where I live does not even have an index for the public to use.Previously we could look to see if there was a matching record.They will charge to look, if they find the record you can have an "informational copy" only.
A county in Northern CA won't even do that, they tell people to make requests to Sacramento, and that can take months, because of the backlog.
Thank you so much for sharing your personal knowledge about the ladies in the Cooke Co, TX courthouse.Hats off to them.Hope they don't retire.(^_^)
