What if you want to check on local records, but there is no genealogical society in the area? Does that mean that the records are gone?

Why not ask at the local library for records? That may be where the records are stored. In Putnam County, Indiana, where I reside, there is no genealogical or historical society. However, there used to be a historical society. All of their records are now housed at the Greencastle library.
