190,000 Welsh wills online at the National Library of Wales
"Over 190,000 Welsh wills (some 800,000 pages) have been digitised and are now available on the National Library of Wales' website or direct on the online catalogue and are free to view. Wills which were proved in the Welsh ecclesiastical courts before the introduction of Civil Probate on 11 January 1858 have long been deposited at The National Library of Wales. An online index and an opportunity to view digital images of these wills within the Library building has been available for sometime, however, from today remote users will also be able to view the digital images"
