Probate records of Texas have been kept by the probate clerk in each county courthouse. You can obtain copies of the records from the clerk's office. In most counties, all information pertaining to a probate case is recorded in the "probate minutes."

The Family History Library has microfilmed key probate records for about half of the counties in Texas. For example, the library has 55 microfilms of files from Bexar County, including an index to probate minutes (1836-1973), minute books (1837-1913), wills (1865-83), general probate index (1837-74), final records (1837-59), bonds (1848-82), and exhibits (1864-78).
