Will Book Number Three
Monroe County, NY


These records were copied in 1941 by Gertrude A. Barber from Will Book number "3" that was created by the Clerk of the Surrogate Court. Many years ago the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) filmed Will Books 1 through 66. Records in Book 3 (on this web page) contain early wills filed in Monroe County. The Will Books have not been seen for many years and are probably in storage. Monroe County has Surrogate Court records (called Probate Records in other states) filed in packets and the packets include the original will. The will books only included a copy of the will. It is best to view the whole Surrogate packet as occassionally there are other documents that may be of interest to genealogical researchers. Besides, the will in the packet is the original with actual signatures.

If writing to the Surrogate Court office, their price for researching a file is $90 per file and 25¢ for copies. That price is set by the New York State Court system. Instead of paying these outrageous fees, either go to the office in person or use a local genealogical researcher. The Surrogate's office have placed inactive files with a privately owned storage company. It takes at least a day to get these files from the storage company to the Surrogate's office to be viewed.

This will book is available from any local branch of the LDS Family History Library. Tell your local Family History Library that you want to order film number #1004287. You may also order individual wills from a company called Sampubco. That company makes copies from the will book filmed by the LDS. See their web site for prices.
