General Collection Information
The Greene County Archives provides access to a large number of records of historical and genealogical importance. All the records held at the Archives are non-circulating, i.e. they may not be checked out like the books in a public library. Visitors are welcome to visit our Reading Room during our normal business hours. Appointments are not necessary, but highly recommended.
Photocopies can be provided for a nominal fee, unless the papers are very fragile and could be damaged by the process. Many of the records have been microfilmed, however, and copies can be made from the film in such cases.
Links to our online catalog and digital repository are below and in the left menu. Please note that new records are being added daily to both databases. We recommend researchers check back frequently for the most up-to-date records.
Our online catalog allows researchers to search for public records and archival materials housed at the Greene County Records Center and Archives. We recommend you visit the Online Catalog page to view search tips and tools to improve your search results.
We are in the process of moving our Elected Officials Search to our online catalog. We have many already uploaded, and we will have instructions on how to conduct your search soon, so stay tuned!
Our digital repository allows researchers to search and download digital images and PDFs of public records and materials. Please note that not all the records we hold have been digitized. We recommend you visit the Digital Repository page to learn some tips for starting your search and browsing the site.
We are in the process of moving the Engineer Map Search to our digital repository. We have many now available in the Historical Maps collection in the Engineer Records, and invite you to view and download the records from there. Once we have all the maps uploaded, we will be deactivating the map search on our website. Please be sure to watch our website for updates!
In addition to our online catalog and digital repository, we also offer links to indexes, inventories, and transcriptions of some of our most widely requested and utilized records.
If you are using any of our records or materials in your research, please follow the provided citation guidelines. We provide example citations for Chicago and APA styles, as well as a general citation. If you have any questions regarding how to properly cite a record or resource, please contact the office.
