I've just come across the National Archived Documents Online service
(well it's new to me so maybe some of you haven't tried it yet either)
You can search a whole range of archive material for free
Eg Wills, Medals Awards, Death duties etc
That may pull up documents relating to your family
You can then download (for a fee) copies of the actual documents
Worth a look
