Because they can be difficult to use, search court records after other records. They can give:

  • Family relationships.
  • Places of residence.
  • Occupations.
  • Descriptions of individuals.
  • Family history information.

Court records are difficult to use because:

  • There are many records.
  • They are not well indexed.
  • Court names and jurisdictions change.
  • They use many legal terms and abbreviations.
