All

An additional 170,000 records added - the collection is now complete and totals some 415,000 searchable entries between the years 1858-1965 inclusive. The database holds details of wills proved at Armagh, Belfast and Londonderry Registries during this period, and database entries are for individuals from what is now Northern Ireland, plus Counties Louth, Monaghan and Donegal.

Digitised images of entries from the copy will books are available for some 100,000 wills. Images for wills proved in the Londonderry District Registry extend to 1899; those from Armagh District Registry extend to 1919; those for Belfast District Registry extend to 1909.

Please see http://goo.gl/Oh2Hvc for the searchable database.
