Have you tried the LDS Church microfilm for Albany Wills ?? I found the will
for my husband's G-g-grandfather in the wills for 1878.... the Albany office
wanted $100.00 research fee (even tho I knew the exact Book & page #) & then
$1.00 per page for photocopying it....
I ordered the film in from the LDS Library & copied the will to CD & printed
it out .... & it ended up costing me less than $10.00.
