BROWSE NITE: 26 April 2004 7 P.M.

Claire presented the program for March on what you will find in the County Judge’s Office, not just estates, but other items that could help you in your search of the family records. She also passed around copies of the old estate probates, with inventories, foreign wills, Guardianships and Conservatorships. Adoptions are not open to the public, however, in the old probate books, you will find that the records state who the adopting parents are, and the fact that they were also advertised under legal records. Not sure when this ceased, we note they were still advertised in the mid-1880’s. You will also find Incompetency cases and Sanity cases.

It was noted that many changes have been made from the past records and those of current records. At the beginning of the county records, everything was hand written into large legal books - and Book B and one other legal book is on microfilm and the film is on our shelf.

There is also a General Index for file cases that run from the beginning of the County up to about 1963. After that time, you will need to check with a clerk in the County Judge’s Office. Divorce cases are found in the Clerk of District Court office.
