My father died six months ago, My sister did not provide me with a copy of the will. She claims she is executor and my father left everything to her. My father lived in New York state.
Since I was not mentioned, she says she need not send me a copy of the will, is this accurate?

Something is wrong and you should see a lawyer right away to make sure your rights are protected. You are supposed to get a copy of the Will and other documents. You have to see a lawyer asap.
Based on the information you provided it may be possible for you to compel your sister to produce the will in court. You should consult with an attorney to determine your rights regarding the will.
