The jury lists found in Drawer RC5B1-31 in the San Mateo County Record Repository are a combination of Certified Lists created by the Board of Supervisor at the request of various court judges and lists that were created to show that a summons to jury duty had been delivered. When both existed for the same court and time, double entries were eliminated from the index. Unfortunately, there are many gaps in the lists which cover the years 1908-1932. Some of the lists name the court and judge that requested the jurors, others do not. Some lists give the address of the potential jurors, others do not.
When women gained the right to vote, the juror lists swelled with women’s names. On some lists including that for the Grand Jury in 1930 the majority of those on the lists were women.
