County and State Classifications of Records
Some items on FamilySearch may be listed as either statewide or local records using the name of the county.
This cataloging system does not mean that the state created the records in the database that contains only the state's name. Always read the description for more details on where the records were obtained.
My personal preference is to use those with the county name in the title as they are more likely to be digital images of actual records.
