Did he have a will? Who are his living relatives? Did probate procedures begin?

First you look to see if there was a will or trust. The next step, if there was none, is to see if Probate has begun. This is, in the most general sense, required when there is no trust and/or estate value over $100K. This would be started, most often, by a surviving spouse or child.
