I, Jane Haig of the Town of Regina in the North West Territories, Widow, Declare this to be my last Will and Testament. I desire my executor hereinafter named to pay out of my estate my debts and funeral expenses.

In the event of either of my said Sisters predeceasing me it is my will that the share to which she should have become entitled to be divided equally among her surviving children. In the event of both of my said Sisters predeceasing me it is my will that the shares to which they would have become entitled to be divided equally among their surviving children. I desire to be buried in the Town of Coburg in the Province of Ontario in the Cemetery where my parents are interred.
This is a Codicil to my last Will and testament dated the Second day of December in the year of Our Lord One thousand eight hundred and Ninety Five.
(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.
