You'll find notices regarding estates, probate, partnerships, divorces, guardianship, and many other clues along the paper trail of our ancestors! Many of these (especially the estate notices) will describe property at length, name other family members, or even mention neighbors' names in property descriptions!  

Legal notices appear in the order that they're added, with the newest items at the top of the list.
