How do I find if ancestors made wills and where to acquire a copy? I live in Sheffield and the Ancestors all died in Leeds area, Sheffield or Rotherham. The earliest is 1871 in Horsforth Leeds.

Hi duckweed,
Have a look at these links:
National Archives

I also believe that wils will be held in York, Lichfield or Canterbury - depending on the year.
The best bet also would be to visist the local archives:
Sheffield Archives
52 Shoreham Street, Sheffield S1P 4SP
Tel: (0114) 273 4756
Fax: (0114) 273 5066
email: sheffield.archives@pipex.dial.com

All the best,
Dave
