These wills have not been at Somerset House since Adam was a lad, and
people could be puzzled at the description. You are referring to the
National Probate Index (wills 1858-1943, with PCC wills 1853-57 added in
basic format) and this is fairly readily available worldwide, through
LDS centres and also in Oz through major FHS libraries and at least a
coupld of state libries (Sydney? Melbourne?)
