What are Probate Procedures?
Some of the most valuable documents to genealogists in discovering information about their ancestors consist of the documents filed in probate actions. However, understanding what has happened and sorting out the various interests of the people named in the action can be a real challenge. Fortunately, genealogists do not need to understand probate in the way an attorney would need to know the subject, but on the other hand, many of the terms and particularly the procedures need to be understood so that the information obtained from the documents is correctly interpreted and recorded.
