See where your Ancestors lived

Have you found your ancestors in the census? If your answer is yes them you may be able to view where they lived on Google maps.
Check on the Census for their address and then go into Google maps and put in their address. Most places now have street view so click on 'More' and when street view comes up click on that and you could be looking at where your Ancestors lived once.

English Wills

If you have membership for Ancestry.co.uk or are thinking of taking membership,you may have not noticed one of their new features.
Ancestry now has the English and Welsh National Probate Calender (Index of Wills and Administration) 1861- 1941.
I have found it very useful having found around 4 wills and confirmation of Death dates.
