Scope and Content
The index to Washington County commission minutes identifies both individuals and subjects discussed at commission meetings. As designed in 1937, the index is in graph form. The first column lists 'name or nature,' meaning individual's name or subject. The second column provides the date. Thereafter the graph is divided into a series of separate columns headed with labels such as: redemption, roads, poor fund, appointments and resignations, appropriations, ordinances, resolutions and petitions, etc. The book and page number is then entered in the appropriate subject column. A clerk kept this index for only two years, then forty years later commenced once more to make entries in the index book. At first he/she made entries in appropriate subject columns, but thereafter disregarded them, making all book and page entries in the miscellaneous column. The second book has only three columns: name or subject, date, book and page number.
