Genealogists Should Not Ignore Great History!
The old Wills and Testaments found in North Carolina counties offer too much genealogical information. For this reason, the researcher should never ignore old Wills and Estates and should search every single aspect of the estate records, including inventories, annual returns, vouchers, receipts, etc. The last will and testament are like a road map, incredibly valuable to family members, past, present, and future. This is where you find names of children, grandchildren, spouses, aunts, uncles, cousins, and places of origin. Many testators mention the children had by the first, second, and third wives. There is simply too much information to bypass. Members of North Carolina Pioneers are enjoying the frequent updates and other wills being added every week. Members do not have to search for an index, then scan through pages and pages searching for specific documents. Our Wills are listed alphabetically by the testator's name and require but one click to bring up the document. How easy is that?
