Trigg County Clerk Dorris McGill will use the more than $23,000 Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives grant to scan county documents mostly consisting of mortgages and deeds. Microfilm copies of the records will be stored in Frankfort in the event of loss of the originals. McGill says at present the County’s records through 1975 are digitized, the grant money will help to fill gaps in the digital record.
