Iowa court records have been kept since 1827. The names of many Iowa residents are listed in civil court records, where information exists about property disputes, divorce, estate settlements and other disputes. These courts also handled criminal matters. Court order books and case files may list a person’s age, residence, occupation, and family relationships. Sometimes friends and neighbors gave depositions as witnesses of events that occurred.
