Will Images on FamilySearch (Index Look-Up)
Posted by: Kevin Campbell (ID *****2381) Date: July 14, 2012 at 07:20:03

Earlier this week another person put the following post on a mailing list .

I wanted to let everyone know that FamilySearch recently added a very large collection of PA probate record images to their new website. The collection includes wills, orphans' court records, estate files, and several other types of records. It is organized by county, and each county has a different types of records and dates of coverage. The collection is not searchable, so to access the records you have to browse through page by page.

Here is a link to the collection:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/show#uri=http://www.familysearch.org/searchapi/search/collection/1999196

For Westmoreland County, the following records appear to be online, but the Will Books appear not to include an index in the front of each book, like other counties do.

Wills 1774-1839 vol 1-2 and 1
Wills 1839-1870 vol 3-5
Wills 1870-1886 vol 5-7
Wills 1886-1896 vol 7-9
Wills 1896-1903 vol 10-12
Wills 1903-1908 vol 13-15
Wills 1908-1914 vol 16-18
Wills 1915-1917 vol 19
Register's and Orphans' Court record index no date A
Register's and Orphans' Court record index no date B
Register's and Orphans' Court record index no date C-D
Register's and Orphans' Court record index no date D-F

Register's and Orphans' Court record index no date I-K
Register's and Orphans' Court record index no date L-M

Register's and Orphans' Court record index no date P-S

Questions
1.       Does anyone know of an index online or available as a scanned PDF?
2.       If not, could someone provide me with a look-up of all the Campbells in the first Will Book volume (1774-1839)?

Thank You
