Oops! I should have said Chancery clerk for wills. In Mississippi probate, wills, divorce, and deed records are kept by the Chancery clerk. Circuit Clerk keeps marriage records.
Another thought -- if a will cannot be found, sometimes you can learn family relationships from deed records after a person dies. MDAH shows the deed INDEX books up to 1915, but has microfilm of actual deed books much later.
