Quick tips for find­ing wills

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ESSENTIAL RECORDS -

If you don’t know the year pro­bate was granted, the Govern­ment’s Find a Will site can be time-con­sum­ing to use. Ances­try’s Na­tional Pro­bate Cal­en­dar is eas­ier to search up to 1996 and, although there is cur­rently a gap be­tween 1967-1972, this will be added to the col­lec­tion in Au­gust this year, adding an ex­tra 1.4 mil­lion names ( bit.ly/anc-pro­bate).

You can also search for pro­bate records granted be­tween 1931 and 1939 us­ing just a post code on haine.org. uk/tom­s_wills/tom­s_wills.php.
