The Madison County Circuit Clerk is announcing thousands of historical records are being preserved online through a new website.  The documents are said to present a unique historical perspective of Madison County and its court system.  The volumes include probate records that can reveal family relationships as well as household and real estate inventories.

Circuit Clerk Judy Nelson says this resource should be especially popular with geneaology buffs.

According to Nelson, digital images of more than 407 volumes of probate records have already been created and 118 of those volumes have been uploaded to the site, which we have linked to here:
