Hi Jan,
   Here is NSW state archives https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/   They have a few probates from the 1980's but most of the probates after 1980 are at the Supreme Court of NSW.

   I can't see a probate for Alastair at NSW SRO.  Nor can I see a probate announcement for him in the Sydney Morning Herald up until 1995.

   Nor can I see a probate for him at NSW Supreme Court https://onlineregistry.lawlink.nsw.gov.au/content/search-probate-notices

( I did look earlier when you were asking about Marjorie  :)  )

   Ros
adding : the Supreme Court Search Page is for probates AFTER 21 Jan 2013.  Before that announcements were in The Sydney Morning Herald.

Hi Ros,

Thanks for the feedback - I understand how it works now. I didn't think I'd thought of probate before - must have had a senior moment. Sorry!

It just occurred to me - he was a NZer. I wonder if his probate, if there was one, would have to be processed in NZ?

It's possible Jan if that's where his will was lodged and if he owned assets there.   I think it then has to be processed in NSW too.  [not sure about this].

No you're not having a senior moment - I just looked for one on SMH when you asked about Marjorie hoping it would give her name and address as executor or benficiary.   But no luck .

I can happily photograph a deceased estate file dfc  :)

There could well be a probate packet for him - there is an annoying gap in the online probate indexes from 1891 to 1927.  I can check the microfiche index when I am there and (if available) photograph it.   Probate packets should have more useful family history info than a deceased estate file and contain the assets and debts as well.
