Probate Records

Wills and probates (Testamente, Hinterlassenschaften) covered the 12th century to present and included the names of the testator and heirs, relationships and places of residence and occupation.  They may be found in the local courthouse (Kantonal und Amtsgericht), some in state and city archives.
