Cadwell Family

CONNECTICUT PROBATE RECORDS

Compiled by Charlou Dolan

 

There are two forms of probate records:  the original documents (usually folded and bound together in packets) and the copies in the assorted record books.  As far as probate courts are concerned, Connecticut is divided into districts, which do not correspond to either the townships or the counties.


Most of the original probate packages were deposited in Hartford, the state capital, where they were alphabetized, numbered and indexed.  After this indexing, the rest of the original records were deposited.  These were placed in their proper alphabetical positions, but they were not given numbers and they are not included in the index.  For the Hartford Probate District, for example, approximately two/thirds of the probate packets are not included in the index.  For this reason I have checked the films for each of the districts to be sure that I have found all the Cadwell probate packages. Only the older probate packages have been filmed.


The recorded probate records are also available, and exist even for some estates where the original documents have been lost.  The assorted will books and administration books have also been filmed for later estates, for which the original documents were not filmed.
