Scope and Content
The Index to Record of Administration of Estates is a probate register of actions taken in estate and guardianship cases handled by the Washington County Probate Court, and subsequently by the probate division of Fifth District Court: Washington County. For each case the register names an individual, states the kind of case, and then lists each action taken in the case. Each entry provides both the date of action and a reference where that action was recorded in Probate Record Books F, G, H, or in the Will Book. While subsequent registers of action include all functions of the probate division, this index includes estate and guardianship cases only.
