Better Images of Adam Brouwer's Will

Some time ago I had made digital images of Adam Brouwer's will available online. These images were taken with a hand held digital camera off a microfilm reader. That technique is admittedly amateurish, but at the time was the only option. Fortunately, since then, the Family History Library, as a part of their efforts to digitize, index, and make available all of their microfilmed collection, has placed images of New York Probate records online. I have downloaded the images for Adam Brouwer's file which is found at the Albany, New York Clerk's Office, as file AB 3.

The above images can be found at the Family Search website under New York Probate Records, 1629-1971, Albany, then scroll down to Wills 1629-1802, AA-AB. There is no search capability for the images in this database and it can be tedious and time consuming to locate any particular will. Adam Brouwer's will begins with image no. 189 and ends with image no. 193. For those interested, the will of Hendrick Brouwer of Schenectady, is also available in this file beginning with image no. 200.
