Notes by Joanna Archer, Public History student, UMBC, spring 2001:
I decided I wanted to follow up on the Denton article that Keating was in debt and tried to locate his will at the Archives (1 hour). I ran into some difficulty
navigating the records (not understanding how they were organized). Eventually using the Wills Index I located the following information for Keating:
Testator: Keating, Thomas J.
Executor: Thomas J. Keating, Jr.
Date of Probate: May 8, 1951. The date of probate is throwing me because it's 53 years after he died. I was unable to locate the will because that particular microfilm was missing from the shelves. Other microfilms used (or to be used):
Estate Dockets: CR 8764
Wills Index: CR 8768
Inventories: Cr 882, 2nd half
I looked at the Iventories but couldn't figure out how they were organized.
