Will of Joseph Minty
In re Joseph Minty deceased
I, Joseph Minty, of Durrels Arm, Twillingate, South Side
[Island] in the Northern District of the island of Newfoundland make
this my last will and testament while in the possession of sound
mind and memory this eighteenth day of October in the year of our
Lord 1909. I give, devise and bequeath my estate and property real
and personal in the following manner.
Correct Charles H. Emerson
(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.
