Lackawanna County - County Unveils On-Line Records Database
A searchable on-line data bases of Register of Wills and Clerk of Judicial Records documents. The new function, free and available at http://www.lpa-homes.org/iclook/LPA_Applications/LPA_Applications.htm, provides digital images of will and probate records from 1878 to the present, marriage applications from 1885 to the present, and Orphan’s Court Division records from 1938 to the present. In addition, the Clerk of Judicial Records’ dockets for both Civil and Family Court Divisions, with the exception of juvenile records, will be available from 1995 to the present. In-house scanned images of documents filed in the two divisions from 2003 to the present – again with the exception of juvenile records - will also be available. Only runs with IE browser. Some people have trouble after downloading the desktop icon. Check with ISP to make sure ports/router configured to access the records. Must search using the installed icon on desktop and not directly from the Lackawanna Co. site. Good idea to read the FAQs.
