Arrangement Note

The entries in each volume are arranged alphabetically by initial letter of the inmate's surname and then by date received. Two books only list the convicts in roughly alphabetical order and give the camp or lessee to whom they were assigned. One of these books also includes a register of escapes, deaths or discharges for 1872 near the end of the book. Another also contains a list of convicts leased to former Governor Joseph E. Brown and assigned to the Dade County Coal Mine Company, showing the county of conviction, crime, date received and term of sentence.

None of the books has an index. See the finding aid for a list of camps and date sequences included.
