Estate Inventories: How to Use Them

Kenneth L. Smith

  • 1250


Estate inventories provide the researcher with something that genealogical charts and tables cannot—a wonderful glimpse into your ancestor's personal possessions. This inventory lists a deceased person's possessions made at the order of the court charged with settling the estate. Many of these inventories are extant and available to the researcher. Some are long and involved; some are as short as a few lines. This not only tells you how to use estate inventories, but also includes a helpful glossary of uncommon words in courthouse records. (137pp. illus. Masthof Press, 2000.)
