By a will I bequeathed my entire property to my son.  After some time I cancelled it and wrote another will by which I gave a portion of the property to my daughter and the remaining portion to my son.  Now, I want to cancel the second will and write another will.  Is it necessary to register the third will since the other two are registered?

It is not necessary to register a subsequent will and to cancel a previous registered will.  A registered will can be cancelled by an unregistered will.  However, it is advisable to register your latest will to avoid misunderstandings and complications at a later date.
