Mission Statement

The Lancaster County Archives is committed to the preservation and accessibility of all public archival documents created within the various County departmental offices.

The Lancaster County Archives was established in 1975 and is the repository for the permanently valuable records produced within the County Courts. Records within the archives such as wills, deeds, and commissioner minutes date back to the county’s formation in 1729 and survive as valuable documentation of local history. Due to their age and fragile condition, many records are also available to researchers on microfilm. Historians, genealogists, title searchers, and engineers utilize the records within the archives.

The Lancaster County Archives has digitized and put online all their land deed indexes and records. Location is https://www.lancasterdeeds.com/.  Select "Search Public Records and Online IQS Infodex. When new screen opens, click Log In as GUEST.  When searching by name, you will need to include a first initial for the given name. Example: "Robinson, T". Once you find a Land Deed you want to look up from the Index, select the "Go To Document" tab and enter the Book and Page.
My search for "Robinson, T" came up with an index that had "Com J P" in the Location field. A bit confusing until we looked it up and found that he had been commissioned as a Justice of Peace. Not sure why that is recorded in the Land Deeds. But definitely a fun resource to search. Thank you, Lancaster Archives!
