§ 104. Application of act; confirmation of previous acts

Each provision of this act relating to the jurisdiction of the
surrogate's court over lifetime trusts or to take the proof of a will

the estate, if a lifetime trust, was created, or the will was made or
the decedent died before or after this act takes effect. All acts
hitherto of surrogates and officers acting as such by completing and
certifying in their own names any uncertified wills, and by signing and
certifying in their own names any uncertified records of wills, and of
other proofs and examinations taken in the proceedings of probate
thereof before their predecessors in office, are hereby confirmed and
declared to be valid and in full compliance with the pre-existing
statutory requirements.
