The St. Louis probate records dating from 1802 to 1900 are available online as part of the Missouri Judicial Records collection at the Missouri State Archives. The Missouri State Archives filmed and digitized the original records.

In the future, St. Louis City probate records after 1900 will be available online and on microfilm. Currently, the Missouri State Archives and the History and Genealogy Department at St. Louis County Library Headquarters have the St. Louis City probate alphabetical card index, which lists the probate cases from 1890 to 1989. The cards include the name of the deceased, the file number, and the date of filing.
