Question: I need help finding some guardianship papers which filed in Victor, New York circa 1889. Any ideas of where I can look for these records online as I live near Chicago.


Answer: The town of Victor, New York is located in Ontario County, the probate records for the 19th century are not online however.  The records for Ontario County guardianships are available from 1795-1924 on microfilm from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. You can order the appropriate film(s) to be sent to a center near you in Chicago. The microfilm list in question can be found online here:
