 "Time and accident are committing daily havoc on the originals
deposited in our public offices... the lost cannot be
     recovered, but let us save what remains; not by vaults and locks
which fence them from the public eye and use...but
     by such as multiplication of copies, as shall place them beyond the
reach of accident."

Thomas Jefferson- 1791

**This one is a sleeper,  I have found recordings here of probate related decrees from other
counties incl San Francisco.  Mainly they had lived or acquired property in Mariposa and the heirs
had to file copies of the probate decree from the other county to be able to do whatever with the
Mariposa asset.  They have in the book along with name of deceased; administrator, names of
heirs, Ct of origin for the probate and book/page for the microfiche copy of the document.
