Ulster County, New York Probate Records, From 1665
Ulster County, New York Probate Records: [from 1665] in the Office of the Surrogate, and in the County Clerk's Office in Kingston, N.Y. . . . with Genealogical and Historical Notes, and List of Dutch and Frisian Baptismal Names with Their English Equivalents. 2 vols. in 1. Gustave Anjou . (1906)
This consolidated volume consists of verbatim abstracts of wills, letters of administration, bonds of administrators, renunciations, and inventories from 1663 to 1766, 1792, and 1827 housed in the county Clerk's Office and the Surrogate's Office in Kingston and various other public and private repositories--most of them translated from Dutch originals. Each abstract gives the name of the testator, the date of the will, the names of all persons mentioned in the will with their relationship to the testator, and the date the will was proved. At the conclusion of each will, the genealogist will find genealogical notes on the testator extending forward, in most cases, for two generations and giving sources. For the researcher's ease of use, Mr. Anjou has provided both a full-name index and a separate index of instruments, with names of testators, date of issue, and date of probate.
