HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS FROM PENDLETON CO., VA (WV)

PROBATE DOCUMENTS

Original probate records may include many important clues for a researcher. These documents may include: date and place of death, name of spouse, names of children and possibly birth order, children’s spouses, grandchildren, locations of property and names of neighbors, indications of occupation and wealth, siblings or even parents. Especially valuable on these original probate records are original signatures or signature marks which can help to differentiate between men of the same or similar names. The signatures and marks can also be used to assist and positively identify the date and vessel of arrival of an immigrant in this country.

This series of CDs by Eric Hedrick contains high quality images of original documents, not images of the recordings. These discs contain probate records which are found in the courthouse in Franklin, WV. A complete table of contents is included on each disc. Many of the surnames found in the index use a standardized spelling to help with identification. The spelling of those surnames may vary greatly in the documents.
