Montgomery County, Texas, Historical Record Project

Funding supports a preservation assessment, staff training, and the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment to ensure proper care for the county's historical records. Materials primarily include judicial case records, some dating back to the Republic of Texas (1836-45).

The project will provide a consultant to review the preservation needs of the records, train the staff in handling these records and provide skills necessary for the staff to preserve the records for public access. Our goals are to: 1) Gain knowledge of how to best preserve the pre-1900 historical documents from further loss or injury; 2) Revise policies, methods and conditions to provide the proper environment for all material filed with the District Clerk's office, both historical and contemporary; and 3) Improve public access to these historical documents once they have been imaged, indexed and filed, thereby making them available to view or copy by the public.
