PROBATE COURT RECORDS LAFAYETTE CO, MS 1836-58

Sometimes wills can be the best sources of details in a family’s history. Prior to the 1850 census, given names were rarely noted except in church records or in bequeaths in wills. For former slaves, probate records may offer a rare clue to whether an ancestor resided in Lafayette County, MS and which surname they may have been using. Sometimes sad, sometimes a happy “find,” the details are always interesting.  PROBATE COURT RECORDS LAFAYETTE CO, MS , 1836-58 gives us an idea of what life was like in the pre-Civil War years.
