When the Utah State Archives transferred a court case index record book from the Fifth District Court in Beaver County for microfilming and permanent storage, we actually left the court without a familiar means to look up case files by name. Now everyone can view the index books online as part of the Utah State Archives Digital Collections. The surnames, arranged alphabetically by the initial letter, are handwritten so not searchable by keyword. However, one can browse the book and choose the initial letters much as one would use the tabs on the original books themselves. The civil and criminal case files indexed by these books are available for viewing and copying through the Research Center now.
