Filming includes death notices, vital records, wills, distribution accounts and succession duty accounts. Estate records are individually numbered and arranged by the first letter of the surname for the years 1850-1921. Thereafter, they are arranged in chronological, not alphabetical, order. Groups of documents often span many years beyond the year of death of the deceased, which is normally used in cataloging the individual records.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
