Formerly the Essex Institute, this is the largest collection of Essex County original source material. There is a good collection of published genealogies and town histories for Essex County. This private library, available with an annual membership or for a daily fee, has the pre-1800 Essex County Court records (see Massachusetts Court Records). See website for details of holdings and accessibility.
