An electronic copy of a single Middle Tennessee record in the WPA product set from GSC Associates sent to you by e-mail as JPEG image(s) of the pages from the record books. This service typically takes only 1 business day, while competing services take 4-6 weeks. If you need copies of only a few records, it may be more economical to purchase just those records rather than the entire CD-ROM set.
The following information (usually acquired from an index such as those posted here) is necessary to place an order:
To keep the costs of this service low, copies are provided by e-mail only. Printed copies are not available, however the JPEG images can be readily printed on most inkjet and laser printers. The page image files are approximately 1 megabyte each in size, so you should be prepared to receive files of this size as attachments to e-mail before you order. One image file is sent per e-mail message, so orders that involve multiple pages will be filled by multiple e-mail messages.
Sometimes the information in indices is incorrect. We will make a reasonable effort to locate a mis-indexed record. Also, sometimes pages are missing from either the original record books or from the microfilmed copies of them. Should we fail to locate a record that you order, you will be notified by e-mail and your purchase price will be refunded. We will provide a copy of all pages that are part of a given record. Typical records are one or two pages in length.
Competing services, such as the one offered by the Tennessee State Library and Archives (see TSLA) cost $10.00 and take 4-6 weeks to furnish a paper copy of a single court record. Such a service will check only those court records that include self-contained indices and will search only a given 5 year span. In contrast, our service provides copies of records spanning many years, uses indices that are posted on-line, costs only $2,00, and provides results in one business day.
The page image(s) we e-mail you were prepared from microfilm published by the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA). The original microfilm for the court records is on various rolls of Record Group 107 (WPA, Tennessee Historical Records Survey) at TSLA. We have already created digital images of all the applicable records on this microfilm. We can access any record very quickly in this digital library, so we do not have to retrieve and mount a physical roll of microfilm and search that film for the record. Because of this, the cost of this service is very reasonable.
