Court Records

Court records contain information about people involved in litigation or other court matters. These records include names of people who were parties to court action, family relationships, places of residence, occupations, descriptions of individuals, and other family information. The records to be searched are determined by the country you are researching. See "Court Records" in the outlines of the countries or states you are researching.

The Family History Library has some court records. Check for these records in the FamilySearch Catalog.

Because of their importance to family history research, probate and naturalization records are discussed in separate sections in this outline.
