Inventory of Women's Personal Property in Washoe County, NV

The Nevada Constitution, ratified in 1864, contained a provision for documenting "all property, both real and personal, of the wife owned or claimed by her before marriage and that acquired afterward by gift, devise or descent" so that in the case of the end of the marriage, she could reclaim it. County Recorders kept the records, and this is the register for Washoe County, Nevada, from 1865 through 1913.

The Digital Services Department in the University Libraries collaborated with the Washoe County Recorder's Office to digitize historical records. Transcribing these records will help make them accessible to those who are unfamiliar with 19th century handwriting, and will also make them searchable.
