Legibility of Papers Versus Record Books

Some of the "loose papers" packets of probate records were recorded in record books, particularly the will, bonds, and inventories. Not all United States jurisdictions have record books and loose papers, but make certain you've checked for them. The actual will or bond may be difficult to read and the transcription in the record book may be more legible.

Or vice versa.

The handwriting in one may also be easier to read than in the other.
