BACKGROUND: People occasionally contact the darrtown.com webmaster with questions about various pieces of property in or around Darrtown. Marvin Russell, a Darrtown native, has frequently volunteered to research the history of various Darrtown properties.
On the assumption that it would empower others to conduct their own property searches, if they knew how to do so, the Darrtown.com webmaster asked Marvin to share his approach to conducting a property search in Butler County, Ohio.
In response to that request, Marvin provided the guidelines at the right.
