Wow Art. I am excited for you. The likelihood is that the Will is going to be a document you will have to copy from microfilm. I was hoping to find a Will left by my great great grandfather in Princeton, Indiana, who died in 1877. I learned from viewing the Probate records on microfilm that he died intestate (without a Will) but my great great grandmother sued the Executor of his estate and those entire probate proceedings were on microfilm.
I am wondering if your ancestor could have traveled by rail to California at that time? I wish you the greatest success in your search.
