==== Probate Records ====
{{NYProbate}} The estate files for Herkimer County do not have their own index. Rather, they are indexed in the index books to letters of administration (film #846533) and wills (film #846532). The number of the estate file is interlined above the name of the deceased. Finding a given estate file at familysearch.org is slightly tricky as the many scanned microfilm rolls are not listed in order by estate file number, but rather in an almost random order. Search repeatedly for the first letter of the deceased's surname followed by a comma, and this will successively bring up all the films which cover that letter of the alphabet, along with the estate file numbers that they cover. <br>{{NYProbate petitions|Herkimer}}
