Scope and Content

Scope and content: Records name appraisers and provide their oaths and gives inventory of all property in an individual's estate who died intestate. Includes real and personal property (lists of specific items, with number of each type of item), all other goods and chattels, securities and mortgages, circulating medium, debts and claims, etc., as well as providing valuation of all the above and overall total valuation of the estate. Also typically notes what property was reserved for the use of the widow and her child(ren). Earliest records were handwritten (and are sometimes badly faded and difficult to read on the microfilm); later volumes provide more formalized divisions in types of property.
