My uncle died and left a will stipulating his children are to have equal shares in his estate. He had property both in Georgia and in New York where his wife lives (he hasn't lived there for 25+ years but his name is still on the deed in New York). We found deeds where he transferred the property in Georgia to one of his children and the tax bills come in her name only - his is nowhere on it. My question is...do the other children have any claim to the property in Georgia or in New York?

Property deeded in life is not part of the estate so it's not part of the will.
As to the NY prooperty you need to ask a NY Lawyer.
