TITLE: Minutes
DATES: 1854-1862
ARRANGEMENT: Chronologically by date with County Court and County Probate Court in separate sections of the first book.

DESCRIPTION: In 1852 the Territorial Legislature defined the powers of county probate courts. In addition to traditional jurisdiction in the probate of wills, the administration of estates of deceased persons, the guardianship of minors, idiots, and insane persons, the Legislature gave Utah probate courts power to exercise original jurisdiction in civil and criminal cases (Laws of Utah, Chapter 42, 1852). The minutes of the Millard County Court describe the proceedings of that court and the cases it heard. They tell when the court met and adjourned, name the judge and indicate action taken or judgments made. The court handled criminal cases, probate, divorces, naturalization, and other civil matters. Minutes of open and closed committee and board meetings as required by UCA 52-4-7.5(2009), et seq. "Written minutes shall be kept of all open meetings" UCA 52-4-7 (2009). May include agenda, meeting minutes, transcripts, and other supporting documentation.
