In reply to your question about obtaining copies of wills, there are several different avenues to follow:

1. Your local Family History Center which would be located at a Church of the Latter Day Saints (Morman Church). Many of the churches have Family History Centers (FHC)which are open to the public. They have microfilms that can be ordered from Salt Lake City, Utah. I know for a fact that they do have all of the willbooks for Beaver Co., PA. There is a charge, but it isn't much, usually about $3.00 to $4.00 for a two month rental. (At least that's what it was the last time that I ordered one.) Also, you may get lucky and the FHC may have a copy already there. Can't hurt to check.

2. You can contact the Carnegie Library in Beaver Co., PA. They may have access to microfilms of the willbooks, but I can't remember. Go to the USGENWEB Beaver Co., PA website and you can find the address there.

3. Contact the Beaver County Courthouse directly. I believe that it costs about $3.00 for a copy. I think that you can get their phone number from directory assistance.

I hope that this helps some.

Alicia
