Where to get copies of Wills?
« on: Thursday 21 February 19 11:35 GMT (UK) »
I have found the Probate Index for two of my ancestors in the early 1900's at St. Clair.

How would I go about finding if they had a will and where would I request a copy please?

Whoops! Now realise this is on the wrong forum - should be on the US one and not Canada.

Update,
Have now received copies of Letters of Administration from the Probate Office of St. Clair.

Thank you for suggesting the link.
