We have gathered together a list of those resources we are aware of for the most common resources, and also some of the less common places to look for information about your family. So, help yourself to the information below, and go hunting.

The State Archives (originally Arkansas History Commission) was created by the General Assembly in 1905 to be responsible for collecting and preserving the source materials of the history of Arkansas. Visit their site for more information about what is available there. Most records have not been digitized so the materials are not available online, but there is information about what is available at the Archives.

Another source is Records Project: Arkansas Genealogy Record Information Online which lists information about various types of records available.

Here's the link for the statewide Arkansas Genealogical Society founded in 1962.

The US GenWeb project has specific state projects as part of it. Here is the Arkansas GenWeb site
