National Historic Probate Project
The National Historic Probate Project (NHPP) is a joint effort by FamilySearch, Ancestry.com, state and local courts, and archives throughout the United States. The goal is to improve access to historic probate documents, records critical to family history research that are largely inaccessible to the public today. These records, gathered in microfilm and other formats over the last fifty years, will be digitized and made searchable. When completed, the collections will be available to archives, courts, and the public on the FamilySearch.org and Ancestry.com websites.
