Historical Background In 1993, the Warren County Clerk's Office began an aggressive microfilming program which saw the conversion of all Civil Action Case Files created as of 1917 (Case # 1 and continuing) to microfilm. The program was designed for improved space management, security to the record, and more efficient retrieval. While the official copy of record for all Civil Actions c. 1917 to present is the microfilm format, the series designated as "Civil Actions - Highway" actually represents the paper copy of highway-related actions. The paper has been retained as part of the archival project entitled: "Warren County Public Works: An Interdepartmental Approach to Archival Research." Further retention of the paper copy and its usefulness for historical research will be evaluated in the future.
