History

Before statehood, probate records were kept by the territorial probate court. After 1890, these records were transferred to the clerk of the district court in each county.

Availability 

Contact the clerk of the district court of each county for copies of probate records. The Family History Library has very few copies of Wyoming probate records.

Wyoming probate records include wills, inheritance tax records, oaths and bonds, petitions, letters testamentaries, letters of administration, final accounts, inventories, bills of sale, probate journals, claims against estates, and guardianship annual reports.
