The description of the Court Records booklet includes:
This booklet is designed primarily for the person who is not an expert, or has little experience, on finding Court Records of their ancestors. It provides guidance and excellent ideas to understand the basics of conducting court record research, with details of the different types of records that might be accessed - probate, civil, criminal, equity and other legal cases.
For someone like me that teaches and talks about genealogy a bit, it is invaluable because I can pull it out and provide some guidance to my student or colleague interested in the subject.
The beauty of these "Genealogy at a Glance" booklets is that they are very light and portable in a briefcase or laptop case. They are fixtures in my research case.
This four-page laminated booklet costs $8.95, plus postage and handling. You can order it through the Genealogical Store, or use the link for the Court Records booklet and click on the "Add to Cart" link. I recommend buying these at seminars and conferences where they are offered in order to avoid the shipping costs.
