It doesn't help. You cannot find a Will with your name as a beneficiary. You have to find out what city your grandfather was living in at the time of his death. Once you find that information then you will be able to find his will. The way you find his will is by contacting the court house in the jurisdiction where your grandfather lived. There will be a court file in your grandfather's name and you will be able to get a copy of the will and of all other documents in that file because the entire court file including the will is a matter of public record. Then, you will be able to find out for certain whether you were named as a beneficiary in your grandfather's will. If you were and you did not receive your inheritance you can then pursue this by retaining your own lawyer.
