Court Records


Several Howard County Court Record Books dating back to 1844 were microfilmed in 2005 and generated 74 rolls of microfilm which are available at the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library in the Genealogy & Local History Department. Library staff and volunteers are creating NAMES indexes for each roll of film in order to make the records more accessible to the public. The NAMES indexes for the Court Records collection is an ongoing project for staff and volunteers of the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library.  Records will be made available on this site as time permits.

Use the quick links to navigate to the  indexes that are completed; and be sure to check back in the future for more postings.

The court records include Wills dating 1844 to1930, and other records from 1844 through 1920 that include Circuit Court Civil Orders, Superior Court, Common Pleas, and Probate Court. There is also a General Index of Guardianships from 1844 to 1899 and Partition Records from 1855 to 1875.
