SURNAME WILLS INFORMATIONLast Updated: May 22, 2006
Beginning in October/November of 96 I finally started something I'd been
thinking about doing for years: looking back in history to find out who my
ancestors were and to find out who my 2nd and 3rd cousins
and great aunts and uncles are.
I knew my father's father had come from Edinburgh, Scotland but I had no
idea when he came to the US, who he came with, how big his (my!) family was or
why he decided to come. I came to find out that the Santa Monica, CA. Church of
Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints (LDS) Family History Center (FHC) has a
tremendous amount of information. With the help of a very generous volunteer I
started "learning the ropes" of the library and Scottish record
keeping in particular.
Since the name WILLS doesn't seem to be that common in Scotland, I've
started collecting everything I come across with the name WILLS. Since I know
they don't all belong to me, I figure there must be some other WILLS' who might
be interested in what I've come across.
The files below contain all the OPR and Civil Birth, Marriage, and Death index records for the surname WILLS throughout Scotland that I have been able to find. The details of all of the OPR and Civil registry entries filmed by the LDS have already been added to these files. The remaining Civil registry entries are being transcribed as I have the money and time. I am focusing on death registries first as they usually contain the most information.Remember to add your surnames and regularly check the Root Surname List for others working your surnames Also be sure to visit the World Wide Wills Family History Center
