FamilySearch have added a collection of abstracts of pre-1858 wills and administrations for the dioceses of Llandaff (1575-1839), St. Asaph (1760-1790), and St. David's (1610-1858). There are 71,262 images browseable by diocese and year. These are abstracts, not the original probate images. A wiki entry on the collection is at
