    UK Wills

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but just noticed a change in the cost of ordering/downloading wills from the UK Government website.
    Was previously £10 - now £1.50.

    Thank you for that, Elaine ;) Excellent news, which I shall be taking advantage of at the very reasonable new price.

        Woo Hoo. Now I won't feel guilty at obtaining twigs on tree 'wills'. Thank you for the update.

                    I wish it were divorces, I still have a few of those to get but nothing of worth in probate to go for.

                          Sounds too good to be true! Hope it’s not an error on their part!!

                            Order what you want in the next 12 months as the price could change again:

                                i too have ordered a couple, anyone know how to get a report of all the people in my tree (on FTM) that have a will record attached. I do have roots magic so maybe I could try there too.

                                    In rootsmagic you can do a "find everywhere" [binoculars icon] search - just insert the word will or probate or whatever word you might have used and it will generate a list of all the locations found and the relevant associated people. [While I use this search item a lot I do find it a bit clunky as it searches not just the database items but all the attached docs and images. I just wish I could do the search only on the database alone]

                                    I've ordered 23 wills already and been able to download only 1 so far...maybe there's a large queue!!!

                                      I used rootsmagic to get a report - thank you, I don't have that many in my tree, so will recheck.

                                        Have we caused a lot of work for them, mine have not arrived and are now over the estimated date. How is everyone else doing?
