Together with the Will Calendars already accessible through the PRONI database, this upload of additional material – which will be on Thursday 13 March at 12:30pm – will mean researchers have access to more than 400,000 Will index entries dating from 1858 to 1965. That's what you call a great genealogical resource!
To mark the event, PRONI will host a lunchtime seminar at its offices on the subject of Wills and Probates on the launch date:
- The first presentation will be given by Wesley Geddis of PRONI who will talk about the range of testamentary papers held by PRONI and provide details of the information they contain. Wesley will also provide a demonstration of the Wills Application to those in attendance.
- Nigel Bloomer of the Belfast Probate Office will talk about the work of the Probate Office and will explain more about current probate processes.
