The following patterns are offered as aids in abstracting court records for genealogical purposes. The forms may be adapted to include other desired items, and if reproduced for personal use, attention should be given to allowing adequate space for recording. If to be typed, design the space to fit the typewriter (computer) [transcriber].
I. ABSTRACT OF MARRIAGE RECORD FOR GENEALOGICAL PURPOSES
II. ABSTRACT OF WILL FOR GENEALOGICAL PURPOSES
III. ABSTRACT OF DEED FOR GENEALOGICAL PURPOSES
“Occasionally it is found that a testator who was known to be an educated person signed his will by making his mark, so it is not always evidence of illiteracy when the will is signed by a mark, nor is the signature to the will generally a satisfactory signature of the testator, as often he is sick, weak, or infirm in body at the signing of the will.” –Abstract of Wills, Grimes, Intro. P. 5 (contributed by former member).
