Default Lincolnshire wills?

There used to be a link to the Lincolnshire Consistory Court Wills Index, but it doesn't seem to work any more and I can't find the index by searching.

The Lincs to the Past website seems to be defunct too.

Lincs to the Past is supposed to be in the process of converting from the now-defunct Flash Player to something more modern. I don't know when that will be done though.

GENUKI has some info about Lincolnshire wills but there doesn't seem to be an online index post-1659 unless the GENUKI page is out of date:

There is also a page about them on FamilySearch but it is definitely out of date as it has the link which doesn't work any more that you mentioned.

It seems absurd you can't search for them on the Lincolnshire Archives website.

I thought I had downloaded the 1701 - 1801 Indexes but I can't find them.

The Lincs Archives site currently is something akin to the old Aarchon Directory and acts as a tool to locate the references and hierarchy of the items within the colllection.
