Probate Records, Sonoma County, California, Index for 1847 to 1959 [2 volumes]


A probate index for the years 1847 through 1959, which contains 28,765 records, is currently archived at the Sonoma County, California, Superior Court. The valuable genealogical data was gleaned from these records by Sonoma County Genealogical Society volunteers, alphabetically arranged by surname, and is presented here in a convenient table format. Probate records generally relate to the disposition of an estate after the owner’s death. However, the records found in the Sonoma County Index also contain a number of additional types of records including adoption, conservatorship, establishing identity, homestead, incompetency, insanity, and others. The names of minors are frequently, but not always, listed.
