Probate records such as wills and administrations can be important sources for such information as names of family members, death dates, and relationships. Probate records 1807–1920 are at:

Public Archives and Records Office
P.O. Box 1000

After 1920 probate records are held at the provincial courthouse.

Although there are a few wills from the 1700s, most wills begin around 1800. All wills and administrations are indexed. Applications for guardianship are listed by the name of the administrator. There are no executor bonds. The Family History Library has:
