Lets ALL get together and see if we can make it cheaper to obtain these very important documents.
I would firstly like to give a Big Thank You to those of you, who have sent in the many transcriptions of Wills that are currently listed on this site, and for making this will transcriptions online site work.
This site is Totally Free and I can assure you that it will remain so,
just like it's Sister Site 'The BMD Certificate exchange Site'.
There are now over 4,800 certificate details listed on the BMD Certificate site, that are looking for new homes.
Now unfortunately I am unable to transcribe wills for others, as I am kept fairly busy updating regularly the web sites that I have. Then I do try to spend some time researching my family history, and helping newcomers to genealogy.
I have taken many measures to ensure that Email Harvesters are unable to collect any email addresses from this site, as well as my other web sites. I use a Script to enter the contact email address, so as no information can be collected from this site by any form of Harvesters.
So you can be sure that you will not start receiving junk emails from placing your will transcriptions on this site, or even by making an entry in the guest book. I do appreciate that nobody likes receiving junk emails, and that is why I have taken these measures.
Best Wishes To You All
You may find this page on this site useful. It is the Probate Registries Page.
On this page you can find a full list of the District Probate Registries & the Probate Sub-Registries as well as the District Probate Registry.
I have also added a few lines about how to obtain a copy of a Will.
I do realise that many wills can prove very difficult to transcribe. You may find the following site which somebody brought to my attention, helpful as it gives a tutorial which will help you learn to read the handwriting found in documents written in English between 1500 and 1800. http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/Palaeography/
I am afraid that due to copyright issues, I can only list transcriptions.
copies of wills submitted to these pages remain the property of the
submitters, they are not to be copied, reproduced on any web-site
without the consent of the submitters or used for any commercial
Unfortunately I am unable to transcribe wills for others, as I am kept fairly busy updating regularly the web sites that I have. Then I do try to spend some time researching my family history, and helping newcomers to genealogy.
Please don't forget to place this site in your Favourites, as I am sure that you will find it of great interest, and please don't keep this site to yourself, tell all of your genealogy friends about it, as I am sure it is going to become a great data base that you will be visiting every now and then.
I have placed a few links on the site for some Free Trials at a couple of well known ancestry sites, I do feel that you can find a great deal of information to help your family tree grow, I myself have used these great Free Trials in the past, but I must admit I did subscribe to a couple, as there was so much info, it was well worth it though, as you can now pay monthly and cancel at any time, Well worth it.
Best Wishes to you all, and I would like to wish you well in your research. Peter.
I have received an email from Jenni, who has a copy of an old will dating to 1800,
and would like to trace the family
If you can relate to the said John Bowler, then please contact Jenni by
Please be aware that there are currently several Probate scams in operation via the Internet . Many of these will inform the recipient that they are the beneficiary of a substantial legacy but will ask for fees and/or taxes in advance of sending more information or the release of funds.
These will always be fraudulent and on no account should you make any payment or transfer any funds.
You can obtain further information and advice concerning such scams on www.met.police.uk/fraudalert
Please make a visit to this great Web Site
Here is a Free site that will list Birth, Marriage & Death Certificates that people have bought in error, I myself have done this in the past, so somebody suggested to me about how good it would be to have a site where people could list these certificates, together with contact details.
I have designed the site and do hope that many of you will make use of it and hopefully benefit from it.
Meaning of Names - Browse through over 40,000 names, name meanings, and origins.
This site provides 1124 links to web sites that offer on-line transcriptions of UK births, marriages, deaths and censuses. A wide range of other indexes and transcriptions are also available for most counties, these may include parish records, wills, monumental inscriptions etc. (Excellent Site)
Family History UK
This is mainly genealogy related, as we share with you the information on our family ancestors that we have researched, our site also lets you see our Family Tree, but this site also covers so much more interesting subjects. We also have a section on Britain In The 1800’s.
