Victorian Wills on FamilySearch

FamilySearch.org has indexed 1 million records from their State of Victoria probate register collection. The collection covers the years from 1841 to 1989 and generally involves wills. A typical record lists the name of person, date of death, address, occupation, date of testament and a declaration. Most wills list names of children, names of heirs, name of the spouse and name of the administrator of the will. Access is free.


  1. Thanks, Victoria, I'll take a look for my Currys, Elms and Nelsons.

  2. I found a few of my Green and Boggis ancestors, so now I am struggling through the old handwriting (glad I listened to THAT talk while on the cruise...)
