Hidden Treasures in Ohio's Court of Common Pleas
Saturday, November 5
Hidden Treasures in Ohio's Court of Common Pleas  (Banquet)
Annual Banquet
SCCOGS Annual Banquet.
    Common Pleas court is often a mystery to genealogists, partly because the office holder is called by another name - Clerk of Courts - and partly because we get a little shocked when we find out all the "good stuff" about our ancestors. We'll look at lawsuits, criminal records, divorces, bastardy cases, land partitions, quadrennial enumerations, earmarks, minister's licenses, tavern licenses, coroner's inquests, naturalizations, supreme court records, and we will closely examine a case packet. What a wide range of subjects, but that is common pleas!
