Introduction to US Probate Records

This class will be an introduction to the records that are associated with the probate process. Probate refers to the general administering of a deceased person's will or the estate of a deceased person without a will. We will cover the court documents that are used to settle an estate. A probate file may contain: wills, petitions, administrative or executive bonds, inventories of property, sales of property, accounts, distributions, guardianships, indentures, and court cases. Occasionally they may contain genealogies, newspaper clippings, manumissions and more. Each of these records will contain names and places that will help in constructing a history of deceased individuals and their families.

The Power of Family Search Wiki

Not even the most brilliant genealogist can keep all the information for each and every place they research in their minds, and this is particularly true for US families who immigrated from multiple countries and then moved easily throughout the United States. If you research in more than one country or more than one state, come learn to harness the power of Family Search Wiki, the repository of all genealogical research knowledge.
