National Probate Index

There is an unsubstantiated report that images of indexes to wills for England and Wales to 1960 are to be made available to search online. If these are the calandars,starting in 1858, meaning a short summary of the will, this would be a significant addition to the repetoire of online genealogical resources -- if only that they usually include the date of death. Read about the existing system at Guide to obtaining probate records.
