7th Floor Records Project - Bound Records

The 7th Floor Records Project is a special project of the Tuscaloosa Genealogical Society with a mission to preserve, digitize, index, and publish the 19th century court records that were previously stored on the 7th floor of the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse.

The bound records collection consists of 535 volumes ranging in date from 1822 through 1900. As of June 2017, 269 of the volumes have been filmed and 78 of them have been indexed.

Thank you for your interest in this project and we encourage all to participate in this worthwhile endeavor.


Bound Volumes General Index

The General Index combines the individual indexes for all the books that have been completed. This index enables researching names across all the bound volumes that are currently indexed. The index provides the volume number, page number, and image number for every person, organization, place, and event mentioned in those volumes.

These files are large and will take 1-2 minutes to load. If your web browser will not open the Microsoft Excel files, simply use the complete general index PDF file provided below.

Once you find the name that you want to research in the General Index, take note of the volume number and image number. Then locate and click the Gallery Link for the individual book in the table below. Then select the Image Number Link on the Gallery Page to view the image of the page that mentions the name being researched. Most names in the index are mentioned on multiple pages and in multiple volumes.

The plus sign "+" in the General Index indicates an African American. Most African Americans in these volumes prior to the Civil War are referred to by only their first names. These individuals appear at the beginning of the General Index. There are, however, a significant number of free "men (or women) of colour" listed in these volumes prior to the Civil War. They are referred to by both a first and last name in additon to the plus sign "+" after their names.

The astrick "*" in the General Index indicates an organization, business, or location.

Indexes for Individual Bound Volumes

The indexes to each individual volume provide the page number and image number for every person, organization, place, and event mentioned in that volume.

The volumes are organized by the court that produced them. The Circuit Court also held Chancery Court sessions until 1839 when a separate Chancery Court was established. The County Court judges also presided over the Orphans Court (which fulfilled the function of a probate court) until 1850 when a separate Probate Court was established. The tax records were approved by the Probate Court judges.

If the table does not provide an Index Link, we have not indexed that volume yet.  If no Gallery Link is provided, then it has not been filmed yet either.

The images for volumes that have been filmed, but not yet indexed are available for veiwing by selecting the appropriate Gallery Link. Even though we have not indexed these volumes, the vast majority of these books contain an index of the plaintiffs and defendants that the court clerks wrote in the front or back of the volume.

The last entry in each gallery is for the Image Page File, which links image numbers to page numbers in the book. The Image Page File can be used to locate the Plaintiff and Defendant indexes created by the court clerks, which will enable you to research names in the books that we have not indexed yet.
