An index of the Hendricks County estate cases that had legal notices published in Hendricks County newspapers has been updated to include notices from the Danville Gazette and The Republican for 1985. This index is in the probate records section of the Hendricks County GenWeb site.

This index now includes these Hendricks County newspapers:

  • Danville Gazette - 1945 through 1985
  • The Republican (Danville) - 1945 through 1985

This index currently covers 1945-1985; more newspapers and more years will be added later.

This may not be a comprehensive list of all of the Hendricks County estate cases for this time period; legal notices could be filed in any newspaper in the county.
