    West Sussex marriage licences are also included in this collection but be warned if you save one to your tree it shows as a probate!

        kylejustin I used to ferret around on Familysearch as many wills are on there but the Ancestry search is so much easier and the images are better. I live in Sussex and my husband's folk are almost wholly from there, and I have a Sussex grandmother so there are rich pickings for me too, plus I do a lot of local history research and transcribe as many Lindfield and Fletching wills as I can for the Sussex Family History Group.

            cbcarolyn the FMP ones are the transcripts of the ones that Ancestry has already with images, I have a sub for FMP but mainly use it for the 1921 when it comes to Sussex
