Scope and content
The series includes probate files from Greenwood Supreme Court and County Court from 1897 to 1949. There is a file list for individual probate files covering 1927-1949. Various filing methods were used by the creator from 1897-1926. These earlier files were grouped together in Shannon files by the creator. Some files are arranged alphabetically and the rest by file number. This order has been maintained. Earlier files are divided into groups of probate files, intestate probate files, and probate files with will annexed. Some files may contain Supreme Court and County Court files mixed together.
The series also includes grants of letters probate and grants of letters of administration from 1899-1949 from the Supreme Court and County Court, including letters for intestate files and letters of administration from the Official Administrator. Some letters are labelled with file numbers that correspond to a probate file.
