Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:
Section 1. That Chapter 93 of the Revised Code of the State of Delaware be, and the same is hereby, amended by striking out of said Chapter 93 all of 3246, Section 8, and inserting in lieu thereof the following:
"3246. Sec. 8. PROBATE IN THIS STATE; RECORD; COPY OF HOW VERIFIED: - Any last will and testament in writing of a person not residing in this State at the time of his death, signed by the testator, and duly admitted to probate or admitted to record without this State, and in the place of the testator's domicile, may be duly admitted to probate and recorded in this State by filing a copy of said will and a copy of the record admitting the same to probate, or if probate be not required, or cannot be had, under the law of the State of the testator's domicile, then by a copy of the record of the mere filing of the said will in conformity to the laws of such domicile, as hereinafter provided, and such will shall then have the same force and effect as if originally proved and allowed in this State. Such copy, to be duly verified, must be certified by the proper officer under his hand and seal of office, if there be a seal of office; and there must also be a certificate, either under the great seal of such State, territory, or country, or under the hand of the Chancellor, or the presiding judge of a court of record of the said State, territory, or country, that such copy is certified in due form and by the proper officer; and in case of a certificate under the hand of a Chancellor or presiding judge, there must be an attestation of the officer keeping the seal of his court, under the hand of said officer and the said seal, that the said certificate is under the hand of the said Chancellor or presiding judge and is entitled to full faith and credit: Provided, that if the will shall have been proved in a foreign country, the certificate under the hand of a Chancellor or presiding judge, as hereinbefore required, may be attested by the resident United States Consul-General, or his deputy, under the seal of the United States Consulate General."
Approved February 18, A. D. 1915.
