The following was received from our friends at the Alabama Genealogical Society.

From eleven microfilm reels, AGS member Caroline Horton has finished transcribing a twenty-five page index of 556 Walker County Probate Court estate case files. Her computer file included 1,009 primary key names of decedents and estate administrators, and numerous heirs and legatees. They have been added to the LRPW database that now has 57,322 searchable names culled from loose court papers of twenty-four Alabama counties.
Supplemental index-keys are included to cover variations in spelling and to enhance the use of wild-card searches. As with other entries in the LRPW database, a found record will also report the probate date-range of each case and the reference number of the film reel available at the Alabama Dept. of Archives & History in Montgomery and FamilySearch Centers worldwide.
To read more about the LRPW project and to search the database visit http://www.lrp.algensoc.org.
