I have also acquired a number of wills which includes primarily Blake at Record Offices (not PCC which all the above Blake are)

namely from Dorset, Hampshire, London, Westminster, Gloucestershire Record Offices

446 wills

Family Search I still have 42 wills to transcribe

Total number of wills is an amazing number:   900+ wills

I continue to write up my own family history and I am now working on my 2x great grandparents and all of their children. I have almost finished my paternal side. I am bringing everyone as close to the present as possible in order to make use of my matches at the various DNA sites where I have tested myself and my siblings.   I am also working on recreating my parents and grandparents DNA. A fascinating trip through time that has quite captured my interest as well.
