I was working on OnLand this morning and was surprised to see an option on the Historical Books to browse through a will index. I am not sure if this is well known so I will go through how I discovered the wills on this site.
- Start at the OnLand website and select your County of interest
2. After you have your location selected you want to click the Historical Books
3. Next selection is the General Register Index
4. And it brought me to this page and I spotted the wills index.
A few things to note, the wills index is sorted by alphabet but once you find your letter of the surname you are interested in it, it is not alphabetical.
It doesn’t appear that this is available for every County as when I checked Grey Co. I was disappointed.
Another thing to keep in mind, the indexes I checked appeared to be more recent but it could vary depending on which county you are interested in.
