Probate Records

Probate records have been kept by the county courts except in Denver, where a separate probate court has been established. Colorado probate records include bonds, affidavits, letters, claims, appraisals, fee accounts, minutes, judgments, dockets, calendars, case files, and wills. The Family History Library does not have copies of probate records from Colorado. You may obtain copies of documents from the clerk's office in each county courthouse.

A source of information from early Denver probate records is Ella Ruland MacDougall, Abstracts of Early Probate Records (S.p.; Family History Library book 978.8 A1 No. 13; film 928039 item 10.)
