The easiest way to see it you are on the deed is to simply go down to the county recorder's where the house is located and get a copy of the deed. It will show everyone who is an owner of the house and you can even get previous deeds and transfer documents.
If parents names are XXXXX XXXXX deed from 91, the only way that could have happened is if either they were listed as owners with you and husband or the house was initially put in their name.
But the only way to know for sure what happened is to go down to the county recorders and get copies of the documents. They are public records so you can go in anytime during normal business hours to figure out how the transaction was structured.
It doesn't make sense to me why you would put his parents on your deed if you were divorcing though. Typically in a divorce, one party just quitclaim deeds their interest to the other spouse as part of any property settlement agreement or they agree to just sell it.
