    3. Several years ago I hired a genealogist to try to get me copies of wills and trust agreements, but was told that they were in the index, but misfiled. So, I let it go, and am just now getting around to trying again. Copies of these documents may help the family solve a long time mystery. How can I get copies of these documents? Receiving copies on line would be fine. Great Great Grandfather Francis Alsip, aka Frank Alsip (originator of Alsip Brick Company) was born 17 November 1827 in Pittsburg, Allegheny, PA, and died 20 December 1907 in Chicago, Cook, IL . Great Grandfather, Frank B. Alsip was born McGregor, Clayton, IA and died 4 May 1910 in Chicago, Cook, IL I also have another Great Great Grandfather who drowned in Lake Superior. He was a resident of Chicago. I have never been able to locate a will nor probate for him. He was a druggist, owned his own store, and I suspect he also left a will. His name was Alexander Chartis Bell, born August 1836 in Scotland, and died 13 December 1887. My grandmother was Ruth Elizabeth Alsip, only living child of Frank B. Alsip and Nellie B. Bell Alsip, whom we suspect was a beneficiary of a large bequest as heir to the estate or by trust. Any help you can give me would certainly be appreciated.
