Looking for ancestors’ Wills and Administrations in England and Wales?

by Nick Thorne, The Nosey Genealogist on September 30th, 2018

The FamilySearch website has added access to over 1 million records from the England and Wales National Index of Wills and Administrations, 1858-1957.

The index gives the date of death, date of probate and the name of the beneficiary.

While the online search is FREE and you can read a transcript, to view the images you will have to visit a family history centre.

Also of interest to people like me with Devon and Cornwall ancestors is that they have added more records to their existing: England, Devon and Cornwall Marriages, 1660-1912. This is a collection containing marriage bonds and allegations from the Diocese of Exeter for marriages that took place in Devon and Cornwall from 1660-1912. These records were filmed by the LDS at the Devon Record Office.
