Search All Jurisdications

When searching an online library card catalog, make certain you have searched for all relevant geographic jurisdictions, this can include city/town, township, county, state, country. It may also include parish or other ecclesiasticall boundaries. The records you may need may have been created at any of these levels and they should be cataloged at the level at which they were created.

  1. It helps to have a fairly unique geographical name for searching. My home county of YAZOO is one such name.
