It is a little confusing so here is the run down:
my grandmother passed away 11/15/2010.
she was my father's mother.
my father abandoned us when i was 6 (1979) and his family was no longer in contact with us after he left.
my father passed in 2006 having never divorced my mother.
when his mother passed it seemed that there was a rush of family members that were making efforts to contact me and my siblings.
They found some of us on FACEBOOK.
I provided mailing information for myself and my mother.
shortly thereafter we received letters in the mail from an attorney that contained a very short statement and provided a copy of a notice of petition for probate of will.
What is the deal with this notice? I have called the attorney and he has not called me back. How can I find out more information about the case? I am limited in my abilities as the case is filed in Massachusetts and I am living in California.
