Sorry I haven't gotten back to you in the past day. As an expert, I work independently on this site and yesterday, I was unable to make time for research. I will get back to you shortly with an answer.

Hello:

So I have found some information for you but it is probably not the full answer you are hoping for.

In order to locate probate documents, you need to know a year of death. So I went online to Scotlandspeople.gov.uk to search for your great-grandmother. I was able to find two Elizabeth Hutchisons listed between 1960-1970 who died in Aberdeen. They both died after 1962, though, so they do not have a viewable copy of the death records on the site. They also do not list enough information to confirm which is your great-grandmother. The first, Elizabeth Hutchison, died in 1968 at the age of 81 in Aberdeen. The second, Elizabeth Mary Hutchison, died in 1970 ate the age of 76. Neither record has information on their maiden names, so you will need to order a copy of the records. I would recommend ordering a copy of the second one first, as the name and age is a closer match. There is a charge from Scotlandspeople for the search and for ordering the copy, and that is not something we can pursue for you through this site.

Once you have the year that she died, then you will need to contact the National Archives of Scotland for a search of their index of wills for that period. Unfortunately, it appears that information is not searchable online, and you need to query them directly for this information. Here is the e-mail address for queries:[email protected]

If you have any questions about the information I've provided, please feel free to contact me.

Peace,
Kari
