Where can I look at the actual wills?
Wills can be viewed in the Probate office at the Madison County Courthouse, where they were recorded in the following record books:
Will Book A… 1813 1841 Will Book B… 1842 1896 Will Book… 1897 1922 Will Book C… Est. May 1913 – Oct 1969 Will Book D… Est. Oct 27, 1971 – Sept 18, 1975 Will Book E… Est. April 3, 1962 – Sept 4, 1969
For a small fee per page, you can order a copy of a will by writing to the Madison County Probate Court. Including the name, date, book and page number in your request will make the clerks job easier. Write to:
Madison County Probate Court P.O. Box 207 Danielsville, GA 30633
Will Books A, B and 1897-1922 have been microfilmed, and appear together on one roll of film. The film is available at the Georgia Department of Archives and History in Atlanta (GDAH), and can also be ordered through your local LDS (Mormon) Family History Center.
