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.
