Check Every Court

At the county level, in some places and time periods, there might have been several different "courts" housed in the same physical location--probate court, court of equity, chancery court, guardianship court, etc. Make certain you've searched all the records when using the indexes. If a "court" housed several different "courts," each court would have had a separate series of records, including indexes.

  1. Using city directories is a good way to find the courts available in the area at the time of publication.
