The court administrator of the district court in each county keeps the probate records, which include general indexes, case files, wills, order books, letters of administration, and probate registers. Case files or probate packets contain various documents, such as wills, inventories, receipts, and letters.

Many Minnesota counties have sent their older records to the State Archives Collection at the Minnesota Historical Society. The Family History Library is acquiring microfilm copies of these records on a county-by-county basis. For more probate records, check the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog under:
