State and Local Courts
After you view this video you will know the commonalities and differences between courts on the state and local level and the types of records that might have been preserved. Your ancestors may have records in a state court for cases as simple as a dog bite or as complex as first degree murder. You will learn about the different levels of courts both criminal and civil.
