Prince William County, Virginia, General Index to Wills, 1734-1951 - Joan W. Peters.
The index to wills found in this work differs substantially in its arrangement from the original. The column format has been retained; however, it has been rearranged into a more reader-friendly format. There are five columns: Date, Surname, Given Name, Instrument and Will Book, and page number. Entries are alphabetized by surname and given name. The probate records are arranged in chronological order by will book for each decedent in the Instruments column. There is an abbreviated index on each page for surnames. Additional information includes, where available, location at the writing of the will, date of death, month/year the will was recorded, location of a court other than Prince William, where the will was first recorded, and alternative name spellings.
