Adams County was formed out of York County in January 1800. The York County Archives holds Adams County's records from 1749-1799. After January 1800, please contact the Adams County Historical Society.
Visit the AOPC website and search for the participant's name. If the case dates from 1989-1999, please provide the York County Archives with the Docket number. For records after 1999, please contact the Clerk of Courts office.
