Probate Laws of Minnesota.
On the request of many readers the
Review commences to publish extracts
from the Probate laws of this state
which are of general interest to all those
in possession of real ar personal prop
erty. In doing st) we will only men
tion the fact that according to estimates
and statistics all titles to real estate, on
an average,pass the Probate court every
22 years, which demonstrates the im
portance of transactions in said court
The following are a few of the points
Every person of full age and sound
mind, being seized in his own right of
anr lands, or entitled to any interest
therein descendible to his heirs, may
devise and dispose of the same by hisMinnesota
last will and testament in writing and
all such estate not disposed of by will
shall descend as the estate of an intes
tate, beingjchargeable in both cases with
the payments of all debts and any
married woman may devise or dispose
of any real or personal property held
by her, or to which she is entitled in
her own right, by her last will and tes

Every person of full age and sound
mind may, by his last will and testa

all his personal estate remaining at his
decease, and all his right thereto and

No will, except such nuncupative
wills as are hereinafter mentioned, shall

aflect the same, unless it is in writing,
and signed at the end thereof by thesome
testator or by some person in his pres
ence and by his special direction, and
attached and subscribed in his person
by two or more competent witnesses.
No nuncupative or unwritten will,
bequeathing personal estate, is valid,
unless made by a soldier while in actu
al military set vice, or by a mariner
while at sea.
All beneficial devises, legacies and
gifts, made oi given in any will to a
subscribing witness thereto, are void,
unless there are two competent sub
scribing witnesses to the same.
Every person having the custody of
anjr will shall within thirty days after
he has knowledge of the death of the
testator, deliver the same into the pro
bate court which has the jurisdiction of
the case, or to the person named in the
will as executor. If in posession of the
executor the latter has to delivei the
same within thirty days and within that
period signify to the court his accept
ance of the trust, or make known in
writing to such court his refusal to ac
No will is effectual to pass either
personal or real estate, unless it is duly
proved and allowed in the probate
court, as provided by law, or, on ap
