Ancestry.co.uk has made the company's exclusive National Probate Calendar, 1861-1941, completely free to everybody until July 8th. You can search the indexes to see where and when your ancestors died, see the original records to discover how much they left behind, and use the information to order their full wills and probate records from the Principal Probate Registry.
At the same time, the company is also offering Andrews Newspaper Index Cards, 1790-1976, for free. This collection of obituaries, death notices and other announcements was put together by heir hunters, and could offer vital clues about where your family’s money ended up.
