"The probate records of Delaware provide the richest source of information for those seeking genealogical data or material for social or economic history in the early years. …All of the original probate records in the Hall of Records have been compared with the recorded copies in the Sussex County Court House in an effort to obtain as complete and accurate a record as possible." These abstracts, arranged in chronological order, generally contain the name of the deceased, the type of record, the date of the record, heirs, officials such as executor and administrator, witnesses, and the place of the complete record. An every-name index provides easy access to all people.
