The Meaning of Administratrix
5/8/18 The Meaning of Administratrix
Did you know this term even existed? It’s administratrix!
An outdated term for a female administrator — the person appointed by a court to handle probate on behalf of someone who died without a will. Now, whether male or female, this person is called the administrator or, in some states, personal representative.
However, personally, if the representative is a woman, I like to call her an administratrix. But that’s a question of personal choice.
If you want a more neutral term, you may use personal administrator.
