Public Notices

These are usually notices of estate settlements after someone's death and were required by law to be posted in the newspaper. If someone is listed here, there is probably an estate settlement case on file in the courthouse for that person. Estate settlements usually name the heirs and can be good sources of information. They can also be quite expensive to get copies of.

Listed here are Adminstrator's Notices, In Chancery to Divorce Notices, and Bills to Foreclose Notices.
