The word “estate” is a legal term that refers to the assets and liabilities left by an individual at the time of their death. The Morden (Southern) Judicial District created estate indexes to provide information about the estates of individuals who died in Morden and the surrounding areas. The indexes are arranged alphabetically by name of deceased. They provide a number that refers to the estate file as well as a book and folio number that references the legal instrument.
Please note that responsibility for probate was tranferred from Morden to Portage la Prairie in 1966. See the Portage la Prairie file index.
