Research Tip

On of the most often overlooked sources of genealogy information is found in "Administrator's Settlement Books." Those persons who were, by law, responsible for distributing the proceeds of an estate, either testate or intestate, were required to report to the court and document estate distribution. Family relationships, even if not spelled out within the settlement, are easily discerned by simple mathematics. Often three or more generations are given in one document when the settlement was delayed so long that the original heirs had died, leaving grandchildren or even great-grandchildren to inherit. These extremely detailed records can often unlock 'brick-wall' doors.


Directed specifically towards the genealogical researcher, this volume contains the abbreviated text of Administrator's Settlement Books for De Kalb County from 1846 through 1907. Each entry lists all information pertinent to research and eliminates the cumbersome text often associated with this type of publication.

Void of legal terminology, it immediately captures relevant data ... the name of deceased, heirs, and relationships - information researchers want. As Joe Friday would say, "just the facts maam, just the facts."
