Genealogy: Courthouse Research
Court records provide some of the richest information for genealogy and family history. Records of wills, probated estates and divorce cases are readily accessible to genealogists and often contain important information about family relationships. Access to other court records about adoptions, guardianships and mental commitments often require special permission before the genealogist can see the records.
Learn about these records, how to find them in Wisconsin and other states, and special legal issues that have to be taken into account when doing your research. To sign up for this class, download our registration form
