The indexes to will and intestacy file numbers 7109 - 11598, "F" files 317 - 1426 and "B" files 1566 - 2504 were compiled by Queensland State Archives staff from Public Trust Office sources.

Information Sources


Each entry in these alphabetical indexes to deceased estate (will and Intestacy) files administered by the Public Curator / Trustee, Brisbane includes the name of the deceased and the will or intestacy number. Also included are indexes to deceased estate "F" (Sec. 35) files and "B" (No Grant) files.

("F" (Sec. 35) referred to small estates which at the time had assets valued at less than $5000 excluding land. "B" (No Grant) files were those of estates where Real Estate was the only asset that required administration. It was not necessary to apply to the court for a grant, hence no grant).
