Minute Books for Genealogists

The genealogist simply cannot ignore Minute Books. A common area to find them is the Inferior Court of any given county. This book is a record of the court's business. In other words, a docket of daily transactions. You are not going to see documents recorded there like you do in the probate court, however, you will ascertain certain facts about your ancestors not otherwise discovered, especially when other court books are lost or destroyed. It is sort of like the tax digests where about all that you can ascertain is the dates they were there. The Minutes may include anything from the appointment of road commissioners and appointments of jurors to an estate being recorded. It is the small details which help to understand better the affairs of the day and the daily lives of our ancestors. Of course the last will and testament is the most gratifying of any court house record because it names the heirs. You can find the old wills on Georgia Pioneers
