SCHHS Records


SCHHS  is focusing on preserving Saline County’s history and our collections include objects, manuscripts, published resources, and photographic archives.

Saline County is one of the small number of counties with county records virtually intact; there have been no courthouse fires, although losses of records have occurred over the years through neglect. Transcripts and abstracts of many of these records have been published by the SCHHS over the years (see The Bookstore link above), both individually and for the benefit of SCHHS, and more are being compiled every day.

The society welcomes contributions of family records, public record transcriptions, and other information of interest to people conducting research on Saline County history or genealogy. Responsibility for the accuracy of information and for opinions, omissions, or factual error is that of the contributor. SCHHS reserves the right to edit any submission for style clarity, length, or interest.
