Follow Friday: The National Wills Index (UK)

The National Wills Index  is a collaborative project to create a single, dedicated, online resource for pre-1857 probate material for England & Wales.  

These are their objectives, according to their website:
  • bringing together into a single database many disparate indexes to probate documents
  • creating indexes to probate documents where these do not already exist
  • making available hard copies of all the indexed probate documents
  • creating digitised images of the original documents, with online access
  • creating full name and place indexes to probate documents. 
This will be a pay-per-view site unless you have a subscription to the Origins net.
