Will of Eliza Collins
In re the Estate of Eliza Collins deceased
In the name of God Amen. This is the last will and Testament of me Eliza Collins of Placentia in the Southern District of the Island of Newfoundland widow.
I hereby revoke all wills by me at any time heretofore made. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal at Placentia this fourth day of November A.D. 1905 the whole read over and explained Eliza Collins [LS]
I certify that the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and Testament of Eliza Collins.
(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are hand-written copies of a, "last will and testament," written by the court clerk, after the death of the testator, when the executor presented them to the court for probate. The court clerk didn't list the signatures at the bottom, he (or she) just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, on the original document, no spacing most of the time, no punctuation. The originals were kept by the executor. |
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm, in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be.
