About Essex County, Massachusetts Probate Records, Part 1

As one of the first settled colonies in North America, Massachusetts occupies an important role in tracing American ancestors. This collection of probate records reveals to the researcher significant information about some residents of Essex County, Massachusetts. As each county was responsible for probate records rather than the state government, this database can be a timesaver for those who are unsure if their ancestor appears in any such records.

This database is a part of the Essex County Probate Records, covering all probates for persons with the last name beginning with P from the late 1700's through the middle of the 1800's. With over 1200 names of persons, ancestors can be found quickly and easily with the use of this database.

Each entry shows the name of the person, date of probate, type of record (will, inventory, etc.), profession, town, and record number.
