"My family knew my mother had an attorney write up her will, but no one knew the name of the attorney. It was so long ago. We are so thankful the attorney registered her will". Michelle Benson  


"Without The U.S. Will Registry, my family would have never been able to find my grandfather’s will written back in 1975". So thankful.  C.L.  Kennedy


"My dad did not use an attorney to write his will.  He told us he did one online 14 years ago, but we could not find it.  Desperate, we did a search on The U.S. Will Registry and he did register his will.  The registration told us exactly where he hid his will in the house, (Under his bed in a strong box), and it even stated who his friend was that had the duplicate copy of the will.  This information was priceless.  It save our family from enormous stress not having to decide what his last wishes "would" have been."  M. Strauss TN
