Montgomery County Surrogate's Court

Over the years Jerome A. Walrath has done extensive research on his ancestral Walraths and allied families at the Montgomery County Department of History and Archives. Jerry's index sampling shows how early and well-organized the treasures of the Archives are. Further information about the Archives at Fonda is in our historical societies section.

The following is from the Montgomery County (NY) Surrogate Court's "General Index To Wills and Proceedings". Many, if not most, of the individuals also have File Boxes with documents related to the probated wills and letters of administration. These might contain information not found in the wills and letters.
