Findmypast adds Wales Probate Abstracts and Westminster Catholic Records

Image browse files of Wales Probate Abstracts 1544-1858 are now on Findmypast for the Welsh dioceses of Bangor, Hawarden, Llandaff, St. Asaph's (which includes 11 parishes in Shropshire, England), and St. David's. The abstracts include testator’s name, residence, the date of the will and probate as well as the names and relationships of other family members.
Each of the 583 volumes is for a diocese and year or group of years. At the start of each is an index by place name and by given name. The names are not searchable. This collection includes images of transcripts from FamilySearch.

Also new this week are additions to England Roman Catholic Parish records for The Archdiocese of Westminster. Along with baptism, marriage and burial records there is a collection of anniversary books, confirmation lists, congregational lists, lists of benefactors and converts, parish diaries, and more under the title Congregational Records.
