Finding Wills & Estate Records

Over the weekend I received a query from a Lenoir County researcher on how to find estate records from someone who died around 1839.  I then realized that on this site, the only information provided on wills was a link to the Lenoir County NCGenWeb Archives listing of user-submitted wills.   While this is a good start, there are additional resources to check if you’re looking for probate records so I’ve added a new page on the site listing these resources.

Most of the links are to microfilm records that are available from the North Carolina State Archives and the Family History Library.  Check out the new page for more info!
