The Arkansas State Archives has a wide variety of types of records. From this page you can search for county records, military records, maps, newspapers, land records, church records, manuscript materials on microfilm, and the State Archives' vertical and printed ephemera files. Here you can also search for photographs located in several of the State Archives' extensive photographic collections, as well as search military and county records, newspapers, vertical files, and general microfilm collections held at our regional archives. These materials have not been digitized, but are available on-site in our research rooms. Some are available as original documents, while others are available only on microfilm.
In this records search, you can conduct searches by title (e.g., county name, publication title) or by the name of a person (e.g., William Woodruff).You can narrow your search by choosing a specific Record Type, or by state or county, or limiting the search to records held at the main Arkansas State Archives location or at either of our regional archives. If you are not getting the results you are looking for, try broadening your search terms, searching by last name only or removing limiters such as City or Location, check out our Tips page, or contact us for help. Click the name or title of a search result to view more information about it.
