The Missouri State Archives will be posting thousands of old state Supreme Court cases online for the public to view beginning late next year.
The agency will use the money to scan the Missouri Supreme Court’s original files in about 9,000 cases heard between 1821 and 1865.
The scanned files will available on a state website with about 12,000 case files dating back to 1783.
The new files are scheduled to be available online in September 2012.
When ready the files will be found on the Missouri Digital Heritage website.
