Good morning. I'm presuming you are his only child and there was no surviving spouse. His estate will need to be distributed pursuant to Georgia's intestate succession rules because he died without a will. If there is a surviving spouse or you have other siblings, they would share in the ownership of the land. But, you will need to petition the probate court in the county in which he resided at the time of his death to be appointed the representative of his estate. You would then sign a Quit Claim Deed on behalf of his estate transferring the land. The Deed needs to be witnessed, notarized, and then recorded in the real property records in the city/county where the property is located.
I hope this has given you information that has been helpful to you. I wish you the best of luck!
