Index to Kennedy Estate Records 1829-1975*

*Newfoundland Estate Administrations were microfilmed by the Latter Day Saints up until 1930 these films may be rented ($ 4) at your local Family History Center or a search can be done at the NL Supreme Court in St. John's for $10.00 per record.  Any record after 1930 is only available from the Supreme Court of Newfoundland.   Should you obtain any records listed here and would like to contribute them or have them transcribed I would happily oblige via email joanne@ancestraldigs.com .  I have the films of pre1930 Probate Wills on permanent file at my FHC and those for Kennedy surnames I have transcribed with links below all other surnames I have transcribed are available at the Grand Banks site .  We are working on an Index to the Estate Files for the Newfoundland Grand Banks .  Although the Index goes up until 1975 we try and stick to the Golden Rule of Genealogy and focus on the pre1920 period.  Another issue to be noted when researching the records below and which I will likely add more confusion than clarity to at this point involves the difference in VOLUME and Folio numbers for the Probate Records listed in the Index of Estate Administrations versus the Volume and Folio numbers of the Probated Records found in the Newfoundland Will Books.  The only way I can explain this (and I have not received a better explanation from the Supreme Court) is that the Estate Files include Guardianship petitions, Estate petitions for those who died Intestate, and Probated Wills and when the Registrar was making True Copies of those "Probated" Wills from the Estate Files to the Newfoundland Will Books the pagination did not match up given that Guardianships and Petitions were not included as part of the Will Books.
