Genealogy

The Middlesex Museum has a large collection of genealogy books related to Middlesex roots. For the “from heres” and the “come heres” there are over 350+ years of information at your fingertips. One block from the museum is the County Courthouse, which holds the vast majority of the historical records for the County. Deeds, plats, wills, birth records, and marriage records were all recorded in the clerk’s office and are now easy to access: a quick walk from the museum. Our county has all of its records. We were not a burned county. That translates to a treasure trove of information for you the researcher!

The Middlesex Museum and its team are available for research resources and for special requests of any kind.

Additionally, here are some helpful websites with information about our earlier residents.
