I recently discovered at FamilySearch.org the Will Records for Jo Daviess County, Illinois, 1829-1926. It’s part of the Illinois, Probate Records, 1819-1970, collection. I started going through the books individually looking for relatives’ wills. I’ve found about 20, but searching is a pain since the wills haven’t been indexed. Fortunately, all but one of the books have a list of names in the first few pages of the books. The images quality is great. To make my search easier, since I know I’ll need it in the future, I started a spreadsheet which lists the names from different will books. I’ve only started a few days ago, but since it will take some time to enter the names, I thought I’d start sharing the information sooner rather than later. If you see errors, let me know.
