The Act ensures that wills lost during the testator's lifetime will be treated in the same manner as wills lost after the testator's death. The Act also conforms the service of process on minors for probate in solemn form to the personal service specified in the Civil Practice Act. Finally, the Act creates a new procedure for choosing an administrator with the will annexed based on a majority in interest of the beneficiaries.
