Georgia Intestate Records
Georgia Intestate Records. Jeannette Holland Austin. (1986).
This work contains abstracts of the intestate records of the fifty-seven Georgia counties formed before the 1832 Land Lottery, plus those for Fulton (1853), White (1857), Dawson (1857), and Webster (1853) counties. The material was extracted from such records as letters of administration, guardianship bonds, administrators' bonds, minutes of the Inferior Court, loose and original papers, minutes of the Court of Ordinary, Superior Court minutes, writs, and miscellaneous estate papers.
Besides the name of the deceased and the dates of the various court papers, information in the abstracts includes the names of the administrators, sureties and guardians (often relatives of the deceased), names of the surviving spouse and children, the names of orphan children and heirs, and, where a will is recorded, the names of the legatees. An ambitious and successful attempt to organize a great deal of previously hard-to-find information!
