I recently traveled to New York – the state.  I was in a surrogate’s court office, looking for a will.  I found the probate announcement easily.  But, where was the will?  There was nothing listed with the probate record.

I looked on the preceding page, and there it was!  In this particular county, the will was before the probate record.  I was used to finding the will after – it is good I looked both places!
