Processing Note

Judgment Docket Indexes since 1982 have had a permanent retention. It was decided to change the format of the Judgment Dockets and their corresponding indexes to microfilm due to preservation problems with the original format (water damage, excessive dirt, brittle paper, and broken bindings) and the fact that the records themselves have no intrinsic value. Processing of this series was begun by Kenneth R. Williams in April of 1994 and microfilmed in July of 1994. Processing was completed by A. C. Cone in January 2003.
