Probate records subject of free webinar

The Florida State Genealogical Society will present a free webinar on Thursday, Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. entitled “Probate Records – Genealogy’s Goldmines.”

Probate is the lawful process that gives a deceased person’s property to another person or persons. Control of this transfer of property from the deceased to living persons can either be testate – the deceased left a will which governs how the property is to be disposed of – or it can be intestate – there was no will and the law and the Probate Court decides the disposition of property. Both methods can be gold mines of genealogical information.

This webinar uses real examples to explain the different kinds of probate records that you are likely to encounter in your research, as well as where the records can be found and the types of information that each kind of record may provide.
