Clarke County Finding Aid

Clarke County, Georgia Probate Court Records Finding Aid
This finding aid is an outcome of the 1999-2000 grant funded by the Historical Repositories Grant Program of the Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board. The main objectives of that project were to find, clean, sort, inventory, and arrange the Probate Court records of Athens-Clarke County as well as to develop a finding aid to easily locate the information. The original finding aid is a paper document with copies located in The Athens-Clarke County Probate Court and The Heritage Room of the Athens-Clarke County Library. The reports contained in the finding aid were generated from a database that was developed as part of the project. The web version was adapted from the database reports and created with assistance from the Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society.

Although this finding aid is useful in many different ways, perhaps one of the most exciting aspects is that the estate and guardianship loose records are indexed and can be accessed by surname or by whole boxes. One can also see whether the record has been microfilmed and by using the key on the main page, tell where the microfilm is housed.

The records that were cataloged are housed at the Clarke County Courthouse in Athens, GA, but one is advised to make an appointment with the records clerk (who stays very busy!)
