Wills and death dates

Sue Huffer found this post on the Ancestry blog and thought you might find it helpful. It has to do with using a will to determine a death date when no other evidence is available. The gist is:

The full post is ‘How to Estimate a Date of Death With a Will‘ by Amy Johnson Crow.
