Second District: Weber County Index to Civil Actions Online

26957-174115_033

Created by the Second District Court in Weber County to record the names of the parties involved in civil actions and provide assigned case numbers, the Index to Civil Actions is now online. Volumes in the series alternate listings on each page, with the left page listing entries by surname of the plaintiff and the right page by surname of the defendant. Specific information recorded for each case includes the docket number (case number) as well as the corresponding register of action book.

The index is useful for finding case files from the Second District from the territorial period up to about 1970.
