Hi, I'm looking for information on how to find a will or estate record. I'm looking for Nathan Godwin and Brother Etheldred Godwin who were on the Clay Co, IN Census in 1830 and Putnam Co in 1840. I cannot find Nathan in 1850, but I believe his brother Dred is found on 1850 Putnam Co Census. So I believe Nathan died between 1840 and 1850.
Where would I find a copy of the will or estate records? Is there an INDEX to wills or estate records for IN? Are all wills and estate records still stored at the courthouses and if so, how do I go about getting a copy of them?
