Discussion: How to Find A Will in Court Records

This webinar will show you how to find pre-1976 wills and estate files in court records that are held at the Archives of Ontario. These records can hold a great deal of information about genealogical ties and assets (such as land!) that may have been passed on to heirs and possibly to your ancestors. In cases where a will does not exist, alternative records to search for more information will be indicated. This webinar will be suitable for researchers just starting to explore their family history in Ontario, or for those who are more advanced in their research.
