Deeds can be copied at the courthouse, but it is inconvenient because the
copiers are all in the county clerks office and the genealogist is not first
in their priorities. The deeds are in the genealogy room in the library on
microfilm...a much more convenient place to research.
The library also has relatively complete cemetery listings in the same room
with the microfilm. If you need some more help, walk a few houses north of
the library on Broadway to the law office of Jock Conley. Sherry Howard,
local genealogist, works for Jock.
Subject: [KYNICHOL] Research Questions?
I am researching Thomas Trigg who died 1836 in
Nicholas County. He appears on the tax List as early
as 1814, the water course is Brushy Fork. I was in
Carlisle and stopped at the court house a few years
ago and found the deed but they were remodeling and we
felt we were in the way and so only stayed a few
minutes. I will be there again this month and will do
further research. I would like to find his grave and
am wondering if any of you have any ideas where I
might start. I was in the Library and they were very
helpful but there didn't seem to be much there for us.
When were the first newspapers published in Nicholas
County? Also, can you make copies of deeds in the
courthouse? Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank You -- Jean Trigg
