Louis GOLDSTEIN, my great-grandfather married to Rosa, has been an
elusive part of my family for 60 years. I just discovered that there
is likely a probate record >from April 26, 1900 that can be found in
the Erie County Surrogate Courthouse, 92 Franklin Street in Buffalo
(hours 8:30--4:45, M-F). Apparently the court will request the file
from storage, but they need a file number to do so. This can be
researched on a computer at the court at no charge. They then will
order the file and have it available in 2-3 weeks and mail a copy to
me. The "Letters Testamentary" making my great-grandmother Rosa the
executrix of his estate is on line at Ancestry implying there is a
probate file. I don't know what's in it, but it's the most substantial
thing I have found to date.

If you live in the area, and can make a trip to the courthouse to
look-up the file number, it will save me months and money. Please
contact me directly if you can help. Thank you.
