Probate records in Wyoming are kept by the clerk of the district court in each county. During the territorial period, probate records were kept by the territorial probate court and include appraisements, bills of sale, claims against estates, final accounts, guardian bonds, guardian annual reports, inheritance tax records, inventories, letters of testamentary or of administration, oaths and bonds for executors and administrators, petitions, probate journals, and wills. Most county probate records are on file at the Wyoming State Archives.
