Re: probate records update

In Reply to: probate records by J. Johnson of 98

I phoned the Storey Co. Recorder's Office two weeks ago & was told that the state archives would have the probate records. I replied that I had just done that and was told by the state archives that they do not have probate records, that they are kept at the county level. I was then told by the woman on the phone that she didn't know if they had 1874 probate records and asked me to put my request in writing. I did and I addressed my request to both the Storey Co. Recorder/Auditor's office and the Storey Co. Clerk/Treasurer's Office. I just got the written reply from the Clerk-treasurer's office in a form letter with a list of genealogy resources and the NV State Library & Archives was highlighted and the State's Vital Statistics Dept. was highlighted. No explanation attached. I know that Vital Statistics are death and birth records, not probate. These probate records EXIST AT THE COUNTY LEVEL. Why I am not getting cooperation from the county staff who are responsible for the care of these records? Has anyone else managed to get a copy of Storey Co. probate records and, if so, which office did they get them from?
