[[Image:Gavel.jpg|right|250px|Gavel.jpg]]Court records may name family members and may mention property descriptions from the country of origin. They are more helpful for colonial times than later periods because colonial court record transcripts are usually published with comprehensive indexes. Examples of sources taken from court records are—<br><br>
*True, Ransom B. {{FHL|392288|title-id|disp=''Biographical Dictionary of Early Virginia 1607-1660''}}. Richmond: Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities, 1982. ({{FHL|392288|title-iditem|disp=FHL fiche 6332718}}.) This work lists every name in pre-1660 Virginia court records.<br>
*Tardif, Phillip. [ ''Notorious Strumpets and Dangerous Girls: Convict Women in Van Diemen's Land, 1803-1829''] (Tasmania). North Ryde, Australia: Angus &amp; Robertson, 1990. ({{FHL|585672|title-id|disp=FHL book 994.6 D3t}}.)
