Lost Will in Georgia

I am trying to find my Mother's will, I think she wrote one while she lived in Atlanta last year - how can I go about finding it - are wills registered?

Any help you can give me is very much appreciated,

You may need the services of an experienced investigator. I have one that I use on a regular basis. We have had mixed results, simply because of various circumstances. If you would like to pursue this, please give me a call.

I presume you have searched among all of her papers and found nothing. Did you review her check book to see what attorney she paid to draw the will? He may have it. Did she have a safety deposit box? Sometimes wills are filed for safekeeping in the Probate Court of the county of her residence.
