Re: family death property
Contact the Surrogate in the County where Dad resided when he passed, to see what type of probate proceedings have been started. The Surrogate will let you know what has been done and who has been appointed and contact information. Then contat the Executor to learn about the estate, what you are entitled to and how to get it.
