Wondering if anyone has experience with these type of records and how best to obtain a copy. I found from the Louisiana, Jefferson Parish, Judicial District Court, Probate dockets 1862-1868 listing a record for Pursell, Sam 1862-1868 with his widow, Ellen, as the petitioner, Docket 313. Is there a library resource in Jefferson Parish that can make these records available? I am assuming, and am somewhat a novice when it comes to these type of genealogical records, that there are more pages to this information? I am trying to find out Sam's death date and descendants as well as any other information that might be available in these records.
I have never requested LDS records, which is where I believe these records come from.
Any help appreciated.
