    Probates Index Number posted is a Box Number.
    It appears as is if this is where the records are all stored.
    Probate boxes - ; and most of this is stored in the basement.
    If visiting the courthouse in person, then to view the contents;
    they must be requested in advance; so that that can be brought up
    from the basement and be available on the day of your arrival.
     
    December 2012 --
    All probate records numbered 1 thru 125, prior to 1910 (inclusive)
    are with the state.
    They are no longer in the Washington County Courthouse.
     
    My understanding is that at the present, you can request photocopies
    of the contents of a Probate Box
          [as of Dec. 2012 - Nos. 126 and above.]
    by mail, but that is what you get
    and pay for : Photocopies of everything in that particular box.
    This could run into a lot or very little.
    Of course, if there is a lot in the box, it could become rather expensive.
     
    The address :
    Washington County Courthouse
    245 North Kaskaskia
    Nashville, IL 62263
    618-327-4800
     
    Information that was received from a
    researcher in June, 2003 :
    It is the CIRCUIT CLERK that you need to contact for these.

    The old records are getting brittle and more and
    more people are coming in to handle them.
    The Clerk is having the old records microfilmed by
    the state and the originals will be housed in the ARCHIVES,
    where they can be properly maintained.
     
    The COST is $1 per page to copy and the Clerk will do the copying.
