Probate Records

Sorry, lost my internet now you get the condenced version on my blog.

Groveland Big 8... 50/50 on Probate

Levi Dunn b. 1773. Yes, will
Simeon Dunn b. 1774. No.
William Dunn b. 1776. No.
Albert Acker b. 1760. Yes, will
John Harrison b. 1773. No.
Isaac Keyser b. 1767. Yes, will. Ohio
Pat Nixon b. 1760. No.
Benjamin Parker b. 1776 Yes, wife probate.

4-Yes. 4-No. 50/50. I love probate records because they identify relationships. I want higher odds!

  1. I guess I should feel grateful. I just reread the entry on US Probate Records on the familysearch wiki. It states:
    "Not everyone left an estate that was probated by a court. Estates were probated for approximately 25 percent of the heads of households in the United States before 1900, whether or not the individual left a will."
    I guess this means the Big 8 are doing 100% better than the average.
