It would be helpful if Brumbaugh identifies the "records instance"
- it should be in Prague municipal court records but these are
certainly not easy to search. I do not know how the chancellary
was organized there - if there were separate books for registering
wills, it might be easier (but I doubt).

It is certainly worth persuing...
