Those Will Witnesses Are Not Heirs

Witnesses to a will can be related to the person signing the will, but they usually are not to be heirs of the estate. Witnesses can be related to your ancestor signing the will. They can be associates of your ancestor. Or the witness could be a person of legal age who happened to be around when your ancestor signed the will and simply knew who your ancestor was.
