nyma-ga, The records of wills and estates are maintained by the various county (borough) courts in NYC. Presuming your grandparents were Manhattanites, then the appropriate court is: http://www.courts.state.ny.us/courts/1jd/surrogates/index.shtml Surrogate's Court New York County (Manhattan) 31 Chambers Street New York, NY 10007 ...Serving the estates of individuals who were permanent residents (domiciliaries) of Manhattan at the time of their death. The instructions for records searches of wills can be found here: http://www.courts.state.ny.us/courts/1jd/surrogates/RecordsSearch.pdf RECORDS SEARCH INFORMATION -- Manhattan Only Note that it's much cheaper to visit the court in person than to ask them to do the search for you. If you need similar information for any other borough, just let me know. Good Luck! pafalafa-ga search strategy -- Google search on [ new york county court wills ]
