Probate genealogy articles on our site

We have updated a few of my probate articles on our site:

Hopefully I've caught all the errors, but let me know if there are bad links by sending me an email at mjnrootdig@gmail.com We are working on modifying additional articles as well.

Probate records are an excellent genealogical source and researchers need to remember that most of them are not available on the Internet.

The book:

Elijah M. Haines, The Probate Manual, Being a Complete Guide for Executors, Administrators and Guardians, Under the Laws of Illinois, with Practical Forms, Chicago, Keen and Lee, 1856, can be purchased for $12 through our website.

1856 Illinois Guide to Probate

We still have a few copies of the 1856 Illinois probate manual that was discussed in an article on this site some time ago. It is excellent reading for those with mid-nineteenth century Illinois ancestors. We will reformat the articles and repost them to this site.
