WY: Archival Records

by

If you’re researching Wyoming history, save a trip to the WY State Archives by using today’s State Agency Database Highlight:

From the website, “MARSS is a database for accessing information about microfilmed records at the Wyoming State Archives. Since the 1950’s, the Wyoming State Archives has been microfilming records and receiving records on microfilm. Archives staff have compiled the index information in a Microfilm Database, allowing information about microfilmed records to be available through the Internet.

The microfilm collection includes records from state and local government agencies, private collections, and a few federal documents. We have almost all of the Wyoming newspapers on microfilm. Database searches can be conducted using the agency name, county office, or record title or description. Most of the microfilm is available for research, but if the research copy is with the agency of record, you will need to contact that agency regarding access to the film.”

The Wyoming page of State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States is maintained by Erin Kinney.
