Winnipeg Estate Indexes 1870-1983

What is an Estate Index?

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 Winnipeg (Eastern) Judicial District created estate indexes to provide information about the estates of individuals who died in Winnipeg 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. Legal instruments were kept separately from the estate file until 1973. After 1973, all legal instruments are kept with the estate file.
