Here's another category to add to that list.
Wills are economic records, not genealogical records.
Specifically, people who had little or no money, did not leave wills.
Wills are NOT genealogical records, in that they may not include all children in the family. They are also known for leaving out daughter's married names, or making vague statements ("to each of my brothers, one shilling, if demanded")
