Abstracts of Ulster County wills have been printed in the New York 
Historical Society's Collections; these are, however, not only scattered 
through a number of volumes, but only an English translation of the 
Dutch records have been printed, which would have been acceptable if 
correct. Unfortunately, this is not the case, as hardly one of the Ulster 
wills have been properly copied, or translated.
