Experiences in Researching in Court Houses

Experiences in Researching in Court Houses is a site I ran across years ago, and for which I've found no substitute online. It's a place for genealogists to report their impressions of courthouses and archives, or to learn what to expect when they visit. Some of the reports are negative ("They made it very evident that we were not welcome"), but many more are positive ("[They] even included me when they ordered lunch!"). What's most beneficial is the advice on finding records not even the courthouse clerks have discovered. This website deserves more than the single, overladen page it's allotted.
