Wills & Last Testaments of Connecticut.

Have you ever wondered if your ancestor left a “will“, now is your chance to find out. Now I don’t have all the names, but I have listed a few. Most all these name will have the name of the town or county they were from or both and their Executors. This is just a will index and not the wills themselves.

If you would like a copy of the will you will need to go the Probate Court, which will be in the county set of the county your ancestor lived and died in. You may only be able to get a copy of the will by visiting the probate court yourself? But first look them up on line, they all should be on the net and see what kind of services they provide
