Too much information to ignore!

Blackbeard's home in Bath, NC
The old Wills and Testaments found in North Carolina counties offer too much genealogical information.  For this reason, the researcher should never ignore the old Wills and Estates and should search every single aspect of the estate records, including inventories, annual returns, vouchers, receipts, etc.  The last will and testament is like unto a road map, incredibly valuable to family members, past, present and future.  This is where you find names of children, grandchildren, spouses, aunts, uncles, cousins, and places of origin.  Many testators mention the children had by the first, second and third wives.  There is simply too much information to bypass.  Members of North Carolina Pioneers are enjoying the frequent updates and additional wills being added every week.  Members do not have to search for an index, then scan through pages and pages searching for specific documents.  Our Wills are listed alphabetically by the name of the testator and requires but one click to bring up the document.  How easy is that?
