Where to start...

How do you know if your ancestors had a will, where should I look?
I have seen 'Probate Records' listed on ancestry and have even tried to read its explaniton as to what 'Probate means' but Im still none the wiser?

All seems very interesting when I have stumbled across wills on ancestry or details of them and on the Archive website, I am told to this day my family are very tight when it comes to money, so I assume there would of been wills made? Unless it was stuffed under a matress or down someones clevage...lol

Also I was trying to locate my fathers from when died in 1988 and my grandfathers when he died in 1991 where do you start with that?

Help/advice much appreciated, just a finger in the right direction....lol:D
