FOUND - SLO County Probate Abstracts!

While doing some cleaning at the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Library, a set of hand written pages of probate abstracts was found. This set of pages contained abstracted information from Probate Packets - Miscellaneous Individuals stored in the San Luis Obispo County Superior Court.

Louise Radcliffe, a member of the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society, was the person who originally went to the court and abstracted the information. She has since passed away, but we are grateful for her diligence in finding and recording historical and genealogical information in our county.

The following probate records were abstracted:

Name and Packet #
1 - Joaquin Blanco
2 - Trifon Garcia
3 - Thomas Oliver [Tomas Olivera]
4 - William Read [Reade, Reed]
5 - Henry Amos Tefft
6 - Thomas Park
7 - Joseph B Clemments [Clements], MD
8 - Jose M Villa
9 - Gabrael Salazar
10 - Victor Linares
11 - Juan Rios
12 - John Matlock
13 - Edward Eversfield
14 - Vincente Canet
15 - Francisca Garcia

The records recorded by Ms. Radcliffe have been typed as is, and no attempt has been made to correct spelling, language or data.

Additional Research can be undertaken by the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society staff. We cannot, however, access the actual Probate Packets, as many of the very old records have been destroyed.
