Compiled by WPA Workers **, this 494-page, 8.5x"11" oversized publication contains court minutes from 1843 through 1850 for Carroll County, Tennessee. This volume is packed with orphan records, estate matters, inventories, tax records, fines, bastardly bonds, pauper records, emancipation orders, civil/criminal court cases, and tax records.

You'll find names, names and more names ...

This volume provides a glimpse into the past when orphans, widows, and paupers were taken care of by the community, when human beings were considered property, and lewd (**aka: cursing**) behavior was punishable by imprisonment. But, most of all, it provides clues on those lost ancestors.

** WPA Workers
During the Great Depression in the early 1900s, many Americans were given a "job" by the United States Government to support their family. One such "job" was transcribing early court, family, Bible, and cemetery records as well as other local records. Original versions were typed on onion skin paper with "x" number of carbon copies. Although the State Archives owns the vast majority of 'first' or typed copy, carbons have circulated for years but are now scattered. Often the typing is not the best and is difficult to read but these valuable records still constitute one of the best sources of information for Tennessee Counties. In many cases, these are all that remain of the original as many county records have been lost. WPA records are generally full text transcription: much larger in scope than an abstraction or summary.
