At the end of the Great Depression, the United States Congress passed legislation to get Americans back to work in all areas of the country. The Work Projects Administration achieved this with different projects in each state. In Texas, an inventory of each of the Court Houses was selected as their project. This one for Fayette County is what is contained in this volume.

An inventory of the Court House means that each of the various offices are examined and a record made of each of the types of files and records each contains. Each entry is noted with the dates and extent of that record. This gives us a clue as to what information is available from each County and the time period they cover.

One example of one office:

#112 MARRIAGE LICENSES, 1838 -. 43 f.b.
Marriage licenses issued by clerk, and returned for recording after performance of ceremony, showing clerk's authorization for marriage ceremony, license number, names of contracting parties, date and place licenses issued; and return of officiating clergyman or magistrate, showing date and place of ceremony, and signatures of officiating party and two witnesses; and clerk's recording certificate showing filing date, and signature. Arr. numer. by license no. No index. Hdw. pr. fm. 11 X 5 X 14. For recorded copies, see entry #113.
