Thanks Fred and Katherine and Dai for the information.
It would be wonderful if everything held by the LDS
Church was available on the internet. Lets hope it
doesn't take too many years.
Dai, you never know we may bump into each other at the
Hyde Park Centre. Let's hope we both don't want the
same film that they do have there!!!

I work in a Family History Center, giving classes
and work on computers,
here in Eastern Utah. Just thought I'd let you know
that any local center
should be able to order in those films on wills.
Here it now costs us
$5.50 US, for I think, 3 months at a time. If you
pay for three times it
then remains at that center permaneantly. Local
centers can be located on
the site: FamilySearch.org
. As mentioned before,
It pays to check the
Local site's inventory before ordering them in.
Also on FamilySearch.org
under the SEARCH tab there
are Research Guidance
and Research Helps. If you go to these, you will
find much information on
how to search in that country. It also explains:
records in each country, how to use and access them.
I have found them very
useful, especially when starting into a new area I
have't searched before.
The index is on Film also. Also sometimes local
Societies have indexes for
the wills that cover their area that are easier to
look names up in.
The Church has announced a plan to put all the films
online in the future
where proper permission can be obtained, but it may
take some years to get
Hope this info is helpful to some, Fred
