A Fully Transcribed record of the Minutes of the Court of Pleas from 1787-1792 in Warren County, North Carolina.

Ancestral Tracks

Court minutes are certainly some of the most under appreciated yet revealing public records a researcher can use. No other record gives us a slice of life across all levels of society like the minutes of the county courts. It's all here -- from boundary disputes to family disputes, from trials for murder to trials for bad debts -- and co-mingled with all the other records that give a glimpse of life in the old days. Yet reading these court minutes is a tedious task, for they are almost never indexed and do not always follow a logical sequence. Ginger Christmas-Beattie has done researchers a great favor by transcribing these minutes and providing a thorough index, thereby eliminating all the pain and leaving only the gain."
David Gammon
