ScotlandsPeople has just announced that the Wills & Testaments for 1902 to 1925 are now live on their website! With this latest addition of records, researchers can now access 1 million Scottish Wills & Testaments, covering the period 1513 to 1925.

The new records, 392,595 in total, document the last wishes of 267,548 individuals who lived and died in Scotland between 1902 and 1925. The collection also includes the wills of Scots who died outside Scotland, but still had assets in the country. As inventories of moveable estate (savings, cash, furniture, stock, etc) are also included, you can discover the fine details of people's worldly possessions during this era.

The full Press Release, and the opportunity to start researching, are both available on their website at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

A reminder that ScotlandsPeople is available at the WAGS Library on a “pay to use” basis.
