Selected HOOD of Yorkshire Old WILL Summaries and ADMINISTRATIONS Only
« on: Tuesday 24 October 17 11:12 BST (UK) »
Hello

I have some selected (but not all), very brief summary notes of old Yorkshire HOOD Wills and intend to add to these (on this thread) over the coming months and wish to keep them altogether (one after the other) in one place, hopefully to assist other family researchers.

NOTES

This thread is not for posting questions.

Because these are from the filmed Registers which are unreadable in places and also Wills copied into a Register are also liable to copyist spelling and other errors and some are, I would always recommend obtaining your own scan of the Will Bundle or checking the Will or any Document yourself.

These were only quick brief summary notes and not the full Will.

Not posted for Commercial or Legal Use.

Not in date or alphabetical order.
