Georgia Probate Records, 1742 – 1975, Now Available Online at FamilySearch

I’m very pleased to announce that FamilySearch has added digital images of microfilmed probate records for Georgia counties, dating from 1742 to 1975. I did a quick look-see at a couple of the counties, and was pleased at the amount of available records.

A word of caution: not all probate records that have been microfilmed are available there. In Rabun County, for instance, there are several earlier volumes of probate records that have been microfilmed, but which aren’t online at FamilySearch. And, of course, there are most likely many probate records available at the county level or otherwise that have not been microfilmed at all. On the other hand, the available collection is significant, and should go far in helping researchers find information about their families.

To view the records, go to FamilySearch. From the main page, scroll down and under “Browse by Location” click on “United States.” On the left-hand side of the next page, click on “Georgia.” In the middle of that page, click on “Georgia, Probate Records, 1742 – 1975.” Finally, click on the link under “View Images in this Collection,” and then on the county of interest.
