Edited by William Smith Pelletreau and indexed by Robert H. Kelly.

Vols. 15-17, having imprints dated respectively 1907, 1908, 1909, were actually issued in 1913.

Wills covering the entire colony of New York were recorded with the Prerogatives Court and later with the Court of Probates under the first Constitution of the state. A portion of the files are in the office of the clerk of the Court of Appeals in Albany; while others, chiefly those relating to Westchester and counties further south, were transferred by legislative act in 1797 to the Surrogate's Office of New York County.

Each volume includes index.

Volumes 3-9, 13-15 include letters of administration.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
