FamilySearch adds Saskatchewan, Probate Estate Files, 1887-1931

There are 41,261 records in Saskatchewan, Probate Estate Files, 1887-1931

"The estate records contain loose papers relating to the settlement of estates including such matters as provision for heirs including minor children as well as distribution of funds, land and property. This project was indexed in partnership with the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society."

A couple of files I examined had just over 30 images each. One related to a deceased WW1 soldier who had left only a military will and mentioned a grand-father, cousin and the legal description of land owned. The other was for a wife who died intestate.
