Researching My Relatives

How do I Research My Great Aunt Edna, Uncle Grumps, & the Kids (During Their Years in Clear Creek County)?

Information by Christine Bradley, Clear Creek County Archivist, January 1996

Anyone starting into genealogy needs to know that it is a labor of love that may take years or even a lifetime of searching. Nevertheless, most of the people who come into the county archives with questions seem to enjoy the challenge. County personnel will be able to direct you to sources of information; however, you will have to do the research yourself or put your name and information request in a pile of letters (that is beginning to look like the pyramids of Egypt). In other words, the county is delighted to have the information you need, and will direct you to the sources, but is not in a position to do extensive genealogical work.
