Scope and Content

Scope and content: Series contains probate case files of closed guardianship cases, establishing guardians to administer estates of minors in probate court. The records include hearings, guardian bonds, appointments of guardians, petitions to sell real estate, estate inventories and appraisals, court orders, and related records. All of these documents were usually filed in a large cardboard enclosure known as a "jacket," which was labeled on the spine or front with the case number and plaintiff/defendant, then filed in sequential order. Case files form the foundation of information that was later entered into dockets and journals.
