PROBATE MINUTES, 1846-1934
Index: There is a confusing array of indexes to the probate records, including an index to the indexes, and the use of two or more in combination will likely be needed to find particular cases. The probate case papers were originally filed alphabetically and only later assigned case numbers. Shortly after the turn of the century, new case numbers were assigned to replace the original ones, but in some instances the old case numbers still appear on one or more documents in a case. We suggest that if a researcher cannot find a case by number that the cases be searched alphabetically to the extent possible. We also suggest that researchers begin their search with the index to probate indexes. For indexes to the probate records request the following reels:
