Court Records  -  Probate

All records which relate to the disposition of an estate after its owner's death are referred to as probate records. These are many and varied in both content and value but, basically, they fall into two main classes . . . If a person died leaving a valid will we say he died testate, if not he died intestate. In most localities in America these records comprise, as a group, one of the most useful genealogical resources available.

Docket Number

FHL Film No.


Buhler, Anton 37522




1. The New Orleans Public Library online index was used to discover the docket number, 37522, for the succession of Anton Buhler. The FHL catalog was then searched and the corresponding film number 581292 was ordered.  This film ends with Docket No. 37511. The NOPL staff checked their copy of the microfilm and found that film number 591292 ends with docket 37511 not 37571. The NOPL staff found Docket number 37522 for Anton Buhler on the next film, number 581293. There is an error in the FHL catalog.
