Auckland Libraries: Wills and probates

Wills and probates with Marie Hickey

Wednesday 11 September 12pm to 1pm Free

Join Marie Hickey as she discusses wills and probates records from New Zealand, England, Scotland and Ireland.

Many researchers believe that it’s not worth looking for their ancestors’ wills, because their family didn’t have much money. This means that they miss out on vital information: Lists of household items, what happened to a particular item, or even learning about a family squabble. This presentation will cover what is available from New Zealand, England, Scotland and Ireland.
