Textual records consist of indexes from 1948 to 1976.

For the years 1948-1957, the index is searchable by either the name of the plaintiff or that of the defendant. The index then lists the corresponding number in the cause book. The index also sometimes provides the volume and folio number for the divorce order. Between 1958 and 1972, the indexes are searchable only by plaintiff name. The indexes for 1973 to 1976 are again straight alphabetical listings of both the plaintiff and defendant, and provide the corresponding number in the cause book.
