Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.You can check with the Circuit Court Clerk of the county where he deceased.The will is public record as is the inventory and anything else filed in the probate case.You can order copies for a minimal amount here so that you can review them.Here is sample court clerk.
