Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The second edition of Bentley's County Courthouse Book joins her Genealogist's Address Book (LJ 4/1/95. 3d ed.) to provide essential resource tools for genealogists and other researchers. An exhaustive revision of the 1990 original (LJ 9/1/90), this edition features updated coverage of 3,125 county jurisdictions and 1,577 New England towns and independent Virginia cities. This and other information was primarily obtained through a questionnaire yielding a 65 percent response rate. Entries for each county courthouse are arranged by state and county and give the current address and phone number. While this book will be heavily used by myriad genealogists around the world, it can also be useful to other researchers regarding land title, property rights, and inheritance. Libraries that bought the 1990 edition will need to purchase this second edition, since it will be essential to both the institutional and home market for genealogists and others whose research demands these resources.

Format: Paperback
Whether you are a weekend genealogist or a professional one, this is one guide that may prove indispensable to you. Yes, much of this information can be found on the Internet, but the amount of information contained in these pages would take days or even weeks to compile. Most of us simply cannot afford to travel to all the places our ancestral information may be stored in so research by mail is essential. This book is set up to facilitate this type of research.

Under each state listing each county and its respective courthouses are listed. Under the state heading you will find a listing of the state capital, the date statehood was attained, and additional information such as charter or say, for instance, when it was annexed from the Louisiana purchase. You will learn about the function of the courts in the state. For example, "Florida's County Courts handle some civil actions, small claims, misdemeanors, ordinance violation, felony preliminaries and traffic." The following example from a Louisiana Parish will give you an idea what to expect from a specific listing:

Morehouse Parish
organized 1844 from Ouachita Territory

Morehouse Parish Clerk of Court
(120 South Franklin, Bastrop, LA 71220-location)
PO Box 1543 (mailing address)
Bastrop, LA 71221
Telephone & fax numbers
Web address
Carol Jones
(deeds and mortgages from 1844, naturalization records from 1871 to 1901, probate records from 1870)
Probate search service: $10.00; copies of probate records: $1.00 per page plus SASA, $2.00 for certification, no minimum.

Most of the listings have very similar information, but some have more.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it was a good cost/benefit ratio, but I knew it would be dated the minute it was published. I downgraded it one star because the information for many locations is more dated than I expected and contains individual-specific information (like individual email addresses) that become outdated very quickly. I would have preferred information that had a longer half-life.
