Hi group it has been awhile since I have been here, but I have something wonderful to share with everyone. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.

I am on the Derbyshire mailing list and there is a very nice man there named Michael Spencer who looks for old wills. Well I asked him he he would look up the Cantrell / Cantrill family name and he hit a gold mine.

Well I hope this help someone out there. Oh by the way in order for me to find the places he said the wills were I went into and typed in as example "Lichfield Joint record office" and was able to get some info as to where to get copies of these from England. Have a great day and God Bless All.
