Where There's A Will, There's A Way

William Jones' 1848 will* located in Jefferson County, Ohio, was the subject of my July 24, 2010, blog post.  *Jones, Wm  W-1848 (Will) WB4, p.337 [as indexed in Ohio Wills and Estates to 1850]

The will was obtained the old-fashioned way.  A letter was sent to the Jefferson County courthouse; money was exchanged and a copy of the will was sent to me via snail mail.

The above-described will of William Jones can now be found here** at FamilySearch.org.  **Ohio, Probate Records, 1790-1967, Jefferson Wills, 1844-1859, Volume 4-5, Image 202 of 752

The increased efficiency of today's research still amazes me.
