Fantastic Find: Ancestry.com Releases U.S. Wills and Probate Records for All 50 States

From the new search page for this collection of databases.  It does require using the new Ancestry.

Ohhh, yeahhhh.

Just searched for one of my 3rd great grandfathers, George Washington Hartley, who died in Cedar Rapids, Linn, Iowa on 6 June 1880.  They have his file!  Wow!  I'm immediately happy with this new release.
George "H?" Hartley?

I'm not sure about the "H" middle name, but George's wife was Rebecca (Paul) Hartley, so the cover of this file, combined with the date and location, makes me sure this is my ancestor.

I'm going to busy for a while with this release.  It's a good day :-)
