The following announcement was written by Origins.net:
Origins.net introduces the British Record Society Probate Collection to its National Wills Index!
www.origins.net now has millions of new names available for searching within the British Record Society (BRS) Probate Collection
The BRS probate indexes show the names and dates of several million wills and other probate documents. Spanning four centuries across Britain, the indexes show you where to go to find the original documents.
This collection provides exclusive online access to BRS indexes and other probate collections via a ‘Google-like’ search. When you view search results as highlighted snippets, you can click to view images of the original indexes to find all the information you need to contact the relevant record offices to be able to examine the original documents.
Over time, as the BRS volumes are indexed individually on the National Wills Index, users will be able to order hard copies of the wills online, and eventually be able to access the documents themselves.
The full list of counties that are currently available for searching online is available at: http://www.origins.net/help/aboutNWI-procoll.aspx
