Great St Patrick's Day offers from Origins

This St Patrick's Day, Origins is opening up access to its Index of Irish Wills, 1484–1858, and offering a whopping 36% discount on an Irish Origins monthly subscription.

Irish Wills Index
This Index spans 1484 to 1858 and contains more than 102,000 names compiled from records found at the National Archives of Ireland (NAI). It is concerned only with records that survive in more-than-index form, ie where original documents, copies, transcripts, abstracts or extracts still exist and can be examined at the NAI.

Each index entry contains the name of the person leaving a will, or being covered by a grant of probate or administration. It also contains their address, sometimes their occupation, and the place where the document was proved (ie a diocesan or the Prerogative court). About half of the entries contain the names and addresses of the executors.
