Scope and Content

Scope and content: Documentation of a variety of probate records, all related to the administration of decedents' estates and the steps through the probate process, from last wills and testament and exhibits to letters of administration for administrators and executors or guardians to appointment of appraisers and inventories. Margins typically indicate what type of document is being produced; alphabetical indexes at beginning of volumes are arranged by surname. Some of the handwriting is faded and therefore difficult to read on the microfilm.
