Work Session for Hendricks County Probate Records

Saturday, April 26 at Danville Public Library is the next scheduled work session for Hendricks County probate records - stop by anytime from 10 am to 4 pm to help unfold and organize some of Hendricks County's probate packets from the 1800's. Lunch is on your own, with a variety of eating options in the area.

This is part of the Indiana Genealogical Society's ongoing project to preserve and digitize these court records, which date back to the founding of the county in 1824. These probate packets include estates and guardianships. The receipts and other original papers in them give fascinating details of what life was like back then.

Please register for the work session - register online through the library's events calendar, or contact their Indiana Room staff - phone (317) 718-8008 extension 140.
