Hendricks County Probate Project Update

The Indiana Genealogical Society, in partnership with the Hendricks County Clerk, the Town of Danville Clerk-Treasurer, and the Allen County Public Library, is working to digitize the Hendricks County probate records from 1824-1900.

There are now more than 1,000 probate files that have been digitized and made available for free on the IGS website.

Probate is more than just wills. It includes settlement of estates without a will, guardianships, adoptions, partition of land, etc.  The images below is part of a guardianship record for Alice, Louisa, Samuel, and Harriet Adams, minor heirs of David B. Adams, deceased.

Keep checking the database, as more files are continually being added.
