  1. In the first column, find the place where your ancestor lived.
  2. In the second column, click on the court name to learn where to find the records and indexes.
  3. If the record isn't found in the primary court, search the records for the secondary courts in the order listed.
  4. If the record still isn't found, search the records for the Prerogative Court of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

If no will is found, your ancestor may not have left one.
