The record books in this series include the name of the order, as well as the corresponding case number from either the civil, criminal, or probate division. The record books also include the names of the parties involved in each case, the date a court order is issued, the name of the judge issuing the order, and the name of the court clerk tasked with officially recording orders in these record books.
