I am requesting information and assistance with discovering Phillips County resources.
Information on the following resources would be welcome: births, deaths, marriages, wills, deeds, funeral records.
Anyone with access to any county resources, and who is willing to volunteer to assist with searching these records in response to researcher queries, please contact me. Your assistance would be gratefully welcomed.
There are a few sources for viewing the microfilms containing Federal Census data: the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the LDS (Mormon) Church Family History Centers (FHC), and many locations online. The Colorado State Historical Society has the films of the State Censuses. In addition, state and local historical or genealogical societies may have some of these films.
The NARA regional offices have available all Federal censuses from 1790-1930 (most of 1890 was lost in a fire), as well as many other records. All NARA regional offices contain the federal records, but the NARA regional office in Denver also contains other Colorado specific records.
Address for viewing census data is:
The Family History Centers will contain varying amounts of census microfilm and other records. They should all have (on microfiche or computer) the index of publications available from their main archives in Salt Lake City. Only those FHCs in the larger cities may have extensive permanent files, but all can request (for a small fee) microfilm and microfiche copies for your research. They do not loan books from the archives, but if the books have been filmed, you can request those films. Many local FHCs may also contain donated books and other records of historical or genealogical interest, some will have the Colorado state census records also.
Family History Centers in Colorado can be found in Aurora, Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, and Sterling (and in North Platte, NE). For addresses, consult telephone books in the appropriate city, or check the COGenWeb Colorado Resources Page.
The following records concerning Phillips County are available in the LDS archives, and can be requested (for a small fee) from any FHC for your viewing pleasure:
