COURT RECORDS

Hardin County KY Clerk's Office had many digitized records - choose the green link that says Record Search to get into the database

Kentucky Probate 1792-1977
- NEW from FamilySearch.  These are digitized versions of the original bond books, will books etc. and vary in content by county.  There is no general search for them but most volumes have an index at the front.  That will tell you if the person left an estate but remember your ancestor may appear in documents as witnesses, buyers, heirs etc. and not show in the index at the front
