Online Researching Tips

Kofile logo
  • Open the online index
  • All users should log on as a guest.  You do not need to register a user name or password.
  • Click on the search public records tab at the top of the screen. 
  • You can search by a variety of different criteria: specific date range, document number, book and page and even on a specific criteria type. 
  • When you have chosen the item(s) you wish to search click on the magnifying glass search button on the top right hand corner.
  • Be as brief as possible when first entering a name to search, it will help catch those names that have a spelling issue.  Less is best.  For example, when researching Sara Haskins first start with: Hask
  • Check the “verified thru date” at the top of the main screen for the last date of verified indexing in the computer.  We try to record documents on a daily basis when we are able but there may be documents recorded after that date that have not yet been verified in the system.  Check with the Town Clerk's Office if you have questions.
