Indictment Record Index, 1906-1950, 27,685 Entries
Indictments are formal charges or accusations of a serious crime. Citizens can also be indicted to serve as a witness to a crime. Our records cover from 1906 to 1950 and cover the Herrin Massacre of 1922.
These records took countless hours to index from old documents and provide an invaluable resource for genealogists and historians that would normally never be made available it they hadn’t been preserved. The WCHS is in possession of each of the listed case files and can be copied on request for a fee of $10 plus .50 for each page scan. If a search of the indexes locates a person of interest, a request for copies of the files in paper or digital format can then be made for a fee. Please, notate the corresponding file number, i.e. 1906-I-003. Contact Us
