How Many Courts Did A County Have?

Make certain you have searched the records of all the courts that a county or other local jurisdiction might have. Some counties might have separate "courts" that heard probates, guardianships, civil cases,criminal cases, etc. The judge and records office might have been the same, but the courts may have been separate with separate records.

  1. In Mississippi, marriages and voter registration are kept by the clerk of the circuit court. Deeds, wills & probates are kept by the clerk of the chancery court. A request to the generic "clerk of the court" will yield NO results!
