Scheduled Presentations for 4th WAC Conference
Title: Indexes Are The Key To Unlocking The Records
Summary: Indexes can make Probate & Land research so much easier, but what if you are lost on how to use the index? Indexing systems are so complex they require guides, keys, or tables to decipher. Let's review Burr Record, Campbell, Cott System, Liber, Page Key, Russell, Split and Vowel Indexes.
Past and Archived Presentations
Title: Probate Where There's A Will or Not (Presented at the 3rd WAC Conference)
Summary: The Probate process took place to find heirs and creditors, whether there was a will (testate) or not (intestate). Various records may be found in probate files, including wills, bonds, petitions, accounts, inventories, administrations, orders, decrees, and distributions. These documents are valuable to genealogists and should not be neglected. Watch Presentation
