Free Access Viewing & Printing Instructions

All of our online indexes and instruments are free to research and view.  Charges will apply only if you wish to print a copy of a document,  We provide a credit card option to pay for printing or you can mail in your request (see FAQ 2) with the appropriate fee.  The site works best using Internet Explorer and the Browntech Image Plugin.

If using Windows 10 Edge Browser you must switch over to IE (Instructions).

**The viewing/printing process is not currently compatible with Google Chrome, the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, iPads, Smart Phones or Other similar devices.**

For Viewing a Document, please follow the instructions below.

1) Go to the Set Viewing/Printing Preferences Link on the main search menu (you will find this after clicking through to the public search page) and select your viewer.  We recommend using the Browntech Image Plugin with Internet Explorer (IE), which can be downloaded from that link.

2) If using  IE  make sure to add our website under “Tools”  “Compatibility View Settings” on your IE browser menu.  After doing so return to set viewing/printing preference link and save the Browntech Plugin as your viewer.

3) If using a browser other than IE (Safari or Firefox) you must use the Java Applet and make sure that your browser allows the applet to run and that you have the latest compatible version for your browser.  Click save on the set viewing/printing preferences page to lock in the java applet as your viewer. Beginning with Firefox 52, released in March 2017, Firefox does not support Java.  However there is a version of Firefox, Firefox 52 ESR (32 bit), that DOES support Java and will allow you to use the Java applet to view/print. To download it, click here and choose the Windows (NOT 64-bit version) or Mac OS version, depending on the machine you are using.

4) Use the main menu search options to find the document(s) you are looking for.  Select the “DOC” icon on the document abstract to prepare the document for viewing. Click View on the left hand side of the screen and your image should appear. If you have difficulty please see the FAQ’s, which address some common issues.
