(Administrations), Obituaries (Obits), Probate Records and Wills provide informative
clues as to not only relationships, but who was living at a given date and even their address.
Common mistakes are to assume:
- people died in the year of making their Will
they may have lived on many years after writing their will
- that addressses were their main and only residence
- probate granted to a widow must automatically have been to their wife
their sister or daughter may have been named as a widow, and if they had married a cousin
they would still be surnamed Glanville, as would a widowed daughter-in-law
- the person who wrote their obituary knew them well and had no vested interest in promoting a
particular point of view, nor wished to suppress any facts
