Wills: Valuable Resources
Will Transcription Service for Local and Family Historians.
Have you downloaded wills or posted away for photocopies only to find that you have difficulty reading and interpreting them?
As a professionally trained archivist I can provide full transcriptions, including translations from Latin. If you prefer I can provide a summary including every personal name and all salient facts but omitting lengthy legal verbiage which can make the text difficult to follow. I will also explain archaic words and endeavour to identify unfamiliar place names.
I am also able to undertake family and local history research in the Bristol area from c.1500 up to 1901.
