Major Kansas courts that kept records of genealogical value were established as follows:

  • District courts have districtwide jurisdiction over civil and criminal cases, including divorces.
  • County courts have countywide jurisdiction over some criminal cases, including traffic violations, and minor civil cases.
  • Magistrate and city courts have citywide jurisdiction over minor criminal matters and traffic matters in some cities.
  • Supreme court serves as the statewide appellate court.

The Family History Library does not presently have copies of Kansas court records. Records are available at the clerk's office in the various courthouses.
