Records Finding Aid

Probate Court Records

Below is a list of the records which can be found in the Clarke County Probate Court. Each record category is linked to a brief description, a list of information that one might find in the record, and an index to the actual records themselves when available. You may also view a summary of the records.

The records appear in bound volumes as well as boxes of loose records. An inventory of loose records is nearly complete and was accomplished with assistance from volunteers. Additionally, an account was made as to the microfilm status of these records. Learn more about this project.
