Have you ever used the Family Search Catalog?  Sometimes great finds are there?

Go to familysearch.org, and click on Catalog.  Then, type in the place name in which you are interested.

Recently, I was trying to find a will of an ancestor.   I typed “Kentucky, Oldham” in the place name space.  When the catalog of items for Oldham County appeared, one of the items was “Kentucky, Oldham – Probate records (2).”  I clicked on it, and “Will books, 1824-1917” was one of the items that appeared.  And, the item was available online!  I found my ancestor’s will and probate record!  What a find!

Not all of the items in Catalog are available online, but it is certainly worth the time to check and see!
