Gloucestshire wills and inventories online

Published: 04 March 2014

Available free at Gloucestershire Archives

Gloucestershire Archives is working in partnership with Ancestry to provide online access to key archive resources for family and local historians.

The first set of images to go online were the wills and inventories (lists of belongings at time of death) of local people dating from Tudor to Victorian times. Parish registers were added in February 2015, and the Bishops' transcripts in August.

You can access Ancestry for free at Gloucestershire Archives and any Gloucestershire library, and also at Gloucestershire Family History Centre.

You can also subscribe to Ancestry for home access at  Ancestry.co.uk.
