This is a typed version of my handwritten notes from the index to Will Book C of Carver County, Minnesota, USA. I interpreted the various styles of handwriting as I went along and this should not be considered a very careful study of the handwriting or the spellings of the names. I am also fairly certain the the index does not contain ALL of the records within the Will Book C.


* The records themselves usually named the township that the person resided in.
* The person's middle name was frequently given in the records themselves, but not recorded in the index. (Definitely a problem for the early Germans who usually went by their middle names and not their first names.)
* Sometimes only initials were used in the index, but the full name was in the record itself. In these cases I tried to go back to the record page and find more of the full name.
* I frequently saw such alterations of names- such as Johann and Johannes in the records, but John in the index.
* Occasionally a will or probate was recorded on several pages (2 to 4 is common) with the remainder of the record being recorded in EARLIER
* No doubt I probably made a few transcription, hand writing and typing errors. I tried my best to get the information recorded accurately in the few hours I had at the library.
