FreeProbate site development - questionnaire

From the Free UK Genealogy ( team:

Do you use wills in family history research? We're developing a new website (FreePROBATE) and want to know how you would like the databases to be indexed. Let us know which fields you would like the search engine to have on our questionnaire here:

And from the questionnaire:

Are you familiar with using wills in family history research? Please help us design the search engine for our new website.

At this stage, we're NOT asking about typography, layout, colours etc. We simply want to know what fields you would like to be able to search by, and an idea of how important you judge them to be.

Sounds like a potentially great expansion from the team that has already brought us FreeCEN, FreeREG and FreeBMD!

  1. Thank you for sharing this information. The link to the questionnaire doesn't work and I can't seem to find a link on their website. I'd love to contribute....
