An action to appoint the personal representative needs to be filed and as part of those documents (which may include renunciations, power of attorney, and other relevant documents) and with that the hand-written will is filed.

The nominated representative should retain an attorney (this is an expense to the estate not to the representative) to make sure the process is done correctly.
