    Tarrant County Archives holdings offer numerous resources useful to family history researchers, if the research pertains to persons who lived in Tarrant County. Some examples of the types of records we have are listed below.  We do not offer access to online genealogy programs or assistance with family tree-building outside of Tarrant County.

    For best results, the Tarrant County Archivist recommends starting genealogical research at another institution that does offer access to such programs – such as the National Archives in Fort Worth or the Fort Worth Library's Genealogy, History, Archives section. For further advice, contact the Archives.
