Author: P. Beryl Eustace
This is Volume II of a two volume set that contains the Irish wills housed at
the Registry of Deeds, Dublin, Ireland have special importance because "they
replace some of those destroyed in the Record Office in 1922, when virtually
all the original Irish Prerogative and Consistorial Wills perished." Miss
Eustace combed through the Registry's vast Index of Grantors in abstracting
this two-volume collection of some 2,000 wills housed at the Registry. The
abstracts include some of the following information: the name, address, and
occupation of the testator; the names of all relatives mentioned in the will;
the names and addresses of all other legatees, trustees, executors, etc.
