Ancestry adds PCC Wills

This is the first big, more than a million records, genealogy database of 2014.
England & Wales, Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills, 1384-1858 with 1,012,964 records has long been available through The National Archives on a pay per view basis. Now you can search and view the manuscript originals through Ancestry.co.uk, and for all Ancestry subscribers with worldwide subscriptions.
PCC was the senior court dealing with English and Welsh probate prior to the start of the civil probate process in January 1858.

A tip of the hat to Christine Jackson for passing along the news.
