Seeking Nevada Historical Society Leads for Civil Case details

I’m trying to find details of a civil suit filed in Nevada. On June 23rd 1936 page 12 of the Reno Gazette-Journal in Reno Nevada, under “Suits Filed” there is a “Frank Marvin Blasingame vs. Marguerite Louis Blasingame”. I’m looking for details of this suit.

I have contacted the archivist at Nevada State Library and public records, however, they only keep records on “Supreme Court” cases and not civil.

They recommend contacting Historical society’s or the Washoe County District Courts and/or other counties.

My questions are:

1. In regards to “Historical Societies” do you all have any leads or recommendation as to one I might want to contact?

2. There are many contacts at district courts. Do you have any suggestions as to departments or “titles” of people I should be looking for? I don't see anything listed for "historical" records, only requests for recent cases.

Thanks all!
