Entering Search Criteria

Enter the name of the estate in the format: last name comma space first name space or period middle initial period (for example, Smith, John D or Smith, Jos). The first name and middle initial may be omitted to accomplish a surname search. Searches are not case sensitive: you may use any combination of upper and lower case letters.

If you cannot find a person for whom you believe there is a probate case file, try broadening your search by entering only a portion of the surname (e.g., John instead of Johnson) or by typing variations of the spelling of a surname (such as Johnson and Johnsen).
