England Probate Guides
The Family History Library has compiled probate guides (also called probate hand lists) for each
county of England. These give the call numbers for the pre-1858 probate records (including
indexes) available at the library and include maps showing the probate jurisdictions. These
guides are available in booklet form at the Family History Library. They are also available on
microfilm and microfiche. The table below gives the library book, film, and fiche numbers for the
guides.
