County Resources

Is there a resource that is not listed here?  If so please let me know and I will add to this list.


Dimmick Memorial Library
54 Broadway
Jim Thorpe, PA 18229-2022
Directions: The Dimmick is located in Jim Thorpe's downtown section, on Broadway. If you are coming into JT from the Lehighton direction, turn left at the traffic light and start looking for a parking place. It is up a bit from the traffic light, and sits back off the street, on the right hand side. It is a low red brick building, over 100 years old. Small yard in front with an iron fence. They also are online, the link appears on the Carbon Co. GenWeb page. If coming from far away, and only have one day or so to research at the Dimmick, it is a good idea to call ahead and reserve time on the m-film viewers. Last time I was there, both viewers were taken.
If you live near enough to Carbon Co. to visit, the Dimmick Library has all censuses up to 1920 on m-film. If you don't live near, check your local library. If they have a m-film reader, you can have them order the census films at a very reasonable cost. If there is an LDS Archive near you, they also can get the census films
