PROBATE RECORDS: These documents establish will date and probate date; residence of testator; spouse's given name usually and ideally, the children are named. Witnesses are very important in a will as are executors (executrix); administrators (administratix). Administrators are appointed when there is no written will. Estate sales and guardianships are important parts of the probate record. Probate may continue for many years following the death of an individual. In fact, a child may have a guardian appointed; but that orphan child, may at age 16, come in to court and make his own request for a guardian. Lois Masters
