Will & Estate Index
of Knox County, IL
Anyone who has mailed & I received two of them via the mail & will find them I am working at the courthouse right now to get caught up on doing these. Feel free to email me below so I can have your information handy.
Any contributions, corrections, or
suggestions would be deeply appreciated!
Thanks!!! Without you there would be no here and now or yesterday....
The below information & service is just for Wills before 1900's, I believe that is the cut off year. All wills & estate records after 1900 you may obtain
from Lily at the Knox County Courthouse:
Just tell her Foxie sent you!
In order to get copies or records from the Estate & Will department at the Knox County Courthouse you have to have someone go in and photograph them. I've done this project before with surprising results. Will scan some of the photos I have in order for you to see how it works. Right now I need to get to the courthouse and do two of them for a couple of people. I'm going to try out my new digital camera on them. I rented a 35 mm camera before because the older digital wouldn't work. will see if the new one will. I'm hoping it will work. If not will have to rent one and cost of rental, film, processing, postage and such is the responsibility of the person requesting the wills or estates papers to be photographed.
Deposit required. Since beginning this page I've found my new digital camera will work on the photographing of wills.
When emailing me about a will, I will need a deposit of $20.00 to start and balance before information is sent to you, the name of the person, year of the will, am not putting the Will & disposed of information on here to help me save time in putting this small little place together. But a must on the full name and the year. Also, will need your address and telephone number in case I have any questions that might arise in the course of doing this job. Thanks! Also, remember not all of the papers seem to be in the probate files, as before and still when people come in to research their family members they seem to take papers with them when they leave. For referral information you can call Lily at the courthouse.
