CONNECTICUT PROBATE ESTATE PAPERS INDEX

 

Connecticut has two sets of probate records: estate papers (original documents generated or received by the courts in connection with a probate case) and probate court record books (court clerks' transcriptions of major probate documents). A document will sometimes appear in one set of records but not in the other.

Estate Papers
The State Library holds most of the original estate papers prior to 1900 and some of later date. The Genealogical Society of Utah has microfilmed many original probate estate papers 1880 and earlier held by the Connecticut State Archives.

Most, but not all, are included in the Probate Estate Papers Index. The index cards are arranged alphabetically by individual's last name and first names. The cards have the individual's name, town of residence, probate district, and list of items contained in the estate packet.

Probate Court Record Books
The original court record books are usually at the various probate courts. Most up to about 1915 have been microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah.
