An index of Hendricks County Circuit Court Complete Records Book volume 8 (6 June 1886 - 8 January 1889) has been added to the Civil Court Records section of the Hendricks County GenWeb site. A complete record book contains an extensive summary of a civil case from its beginning to its end. Making a complete record of a civil case was not a requirement - it required the lawyer to pay an additional fee to the clerk - so most civil cases are not included in these books. The option of having a complete record made of a civil case was abolished in Indiana by 1920.
The complete records books of the Hendricks County Circuit Court for volumes 2 through 16 (1834-1920) have been microfilmed. That microfilm is available for viewing locally at the Plainfield Public Library and the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis, and it can also be ordered through FamilySearch.
