The Arkansas State Archives Online

The Arkansas History Commission maintains a terrific Web-based index to its extensive state archive.  Included are a huge collection of photographs, in addition to thorough indices of Federal census records for Arkansas, manuscripts, newspapers (with a searchable city or county index of publications and time periods for which issues are available), state government records, county records (with a searchable index), military records (searchable by surname), maps, books and pamphlets, and church and cemetery records.  If you are planning a research trip or simply plan to write to inquire about records, this site is a well-conceived place to begin your preparations.
