That's okay, Allen.
scroll down to MARS CATALOG, and a new window will open. To get to the records I'm referring to, type in "William Eaton" beside "Free Text" box, click Select All, then click the Search button. It takes a few minutes, but one of the Results will be "Records of Probation", (or something to that effect), click that, and there are the links to the will, which will have the option to view document. It requires the use of Active X controls and for the installation of Lizard Tech software, which is quite an easy install. The results are great, though, the entire will is 9 pages long. A word of warning about the MARS Catalog, though, is that as good a tool as it is, they don't seem to be able to keep it up much on weekends or evenings, it's touch and go of whether or not it will come on. If you can't get in during those times, try it early in the day on weekends, or only on weekdays.
