Viewing probate records in the search room

The overall plan for the North East Inheritance project has always been that the digital images, which are made freely available online by the Genealogical Society of Utah, would be used in place of the original documents. This remains the plan, and these images are now linked from our online catalogue entries. See the online images page for more details on how to access the images.

Meanwhile, you may be still able to view the originals for any of the probate records within our search room at Palace Green Library (subject to a very few items which may be too fragile for production). This service is currently subject to restrictions on numbers of distanced spaces within our search room, the need to prioritise the education of our students when spaces are short, and completion of the online booking form linked from that page.
