How can someone in the US get a copy of this Will?
« on: Friday 02 June 17 18:08 BST (UK) »
PRONI D668/146/2. 28 July 1832 Copy of will of Thomas Hogg. Beneficiaries wife Molly; sons Thomas, Alexander, John; daughters Jane, Mary. Executors; Cornelieus Foy [Toy] and Alexander Foy [Toy].

Original Documents :   The original documents referred to in this index DO exist. Further information can be found under the PRONI reference above.
This would be located at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland. (PRONI)

Is there a way to pay for a copy and have it sent to me? I'm afraid a trip to Ireland isnt a possibility and I'm convinced given the time frame and the names involved that this is the Will of my 4th Great Grandfather.

Perhaps contact them using this form here:

https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/forms/enquiry-service-proni

or email them using the contact details on this page:

https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/contacts/contacts-az/public-record-office-northern-ireland

and ask if it is possible to get a copy and if there is a fee.

Good luck

Nell
