@Hugh Lenox Looking at the record collection you cited: Maryland Register of Wills Records, 1629-1999, we see that all of these images are in fact digitized. Not indexed, but digitized. That is what the camera icon is telling you when you look at the collection on our Record Collections page:
When you click to Browse the Images, click Queen Anne's for the county, and then click to get to the specific volume and year of interest, images come up. They are publicly available. We, of course, did not try clicking every volume and year to check that they are all available but all the ones we tried showed us the scanned images. If you found one that does not open images, can you please provide us with the specifics so we can see what you see and determine if we have a problem with this Record Collection? Thank you!0
@Hugh Lenox It does appear that the Queen Anne County, Maryland wills, 1706-1734 (which is part of the collection: Maryland Register of Wills Records, 1629-1999) is "unavailable for online viewing at this time." The information that @MiriamJoyce21 provided, citing the Research Wiki page, Maryland Register of Wills Records - FamilySearch Historical Records/Known Issues, confirms this.
It does not appear that Ancestry has the Queen Anne's Wills 1706-1734 vol SC,, or, at least, I was not able to find it.
As an alternative, you may choose to search the Maryland State Archives, (Probate Records, Colonial, Index), 1634-1777, Index 1, MSA S1393. These are index records only; however, the index will give you the date, Liber and Folio. With that information, you may be able to find assistance in obtaining a copy of an individual's will. You can call the archives for research assistance (410-260-6487). You might also be able to obtain a short list of researchers who will find a send you a copy of the will for a fee.
We hope that this additional information may be helpful to you.0
