Germany: new will registry

Germany has started to create a central will registry which is managed by the chamber of German notaries ("Bundesnotarkammer"). The will registry is currently digitalizing information provided by the German civil registers that are currently responsible to inform German probate courts that a will is registered and where it is registered. The central will registry is planned to be complete in 2016. Unfortunately there will be not online access for citizens. Thus, it is inevitable to contact the local probate at the place of the last residence of the decedent.
