Does what it says on the cover!, 7 Dec. 2010
It is what is says it is, which is an informative guide to finding and understanding wills and probate records, to the point, nothing fancy. It was very helpful with a bit of interesting background information as well. Unfortunately I think any book on any subject relating to accessing actual databases of genealogical data is going to be out of date as fast as it is printed as so much more is being made available online every month. Nevertheless, knowing what is out there and where to get at it is great, but it's still helpful to know the how,when, why and by whom of will making and probate granting.
