This is a copy of the Probate Court Docket, Book A, Escambia County, Ala., 1880-1915. It is listed online at the Tracking Your Roots which I told you about last week. It was typed and contributed to the site by Lygia Dawkins Cutts from information she found at the JDCC Library. This information is now located in the Thomas E. McMillan Museum at JDCC.
This is an index only. There are a variety of instruments that are mentioned in the Docket. The instruments themselves are not recorded. Examples are: wills, guardianships, and administrations. This may prove a small treasure to some Escambia County, AL researchers. It lists the name and page number where the information can be found.
