English and Welsh probate records are split into two eras – pre and post 1858 – and how to track down your ancestors’ probate records is different in these two timescales.  This talk takes you through the differences for these two eras, the types of records you may find and what they contain.  Information on how to find indexes and use them to locate the original wills, administrations and other records is provided noting some are easy to find however many more are often hidden online or remain only at archives. In particular, how to find the records available through the FamilySearch website will be explained.  At the end of this talk, you will be ready to go and find the wealth of information hidden in probate records.
