One side note - how do you determine the appropriate probate court where an estate is being or has been, probated? An estate is probated in the county where the deceased person lived at the time of his or her death, or, in some cases, the county where the deceased person owned real estate. Use the following website to locate the correct name of the county by plugging in the name of the city where the deceased person lived or owned real estate: City - County Search.
Once you have located the appropriate county, an online search can be done for that county's probate court or probate court dockets. It can be tricky because in some states the probate court is not called the probate court, it could be referred to as the "circuit court," "surrogate's court," "orphan's court," or any other number of courts.
But be persistent - since probate occurs in each and every county across the country, chances are you will be able to locate the appropriate court's online information.
