Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
.
If father was listed as an heir, but he is deceased, then his portion would pass down to his heirs or through any will that he had.
.
So you would have a right to request a copy of the trust to see if father was specifically named as well as you being named, or whether you are inheriting some portion because father was the only one named and since he is deceased, his share passed down to you through intestate succession laws.

My father name was not listed as an heir on the re wrote will dated march 10,1999. Because he died December 24,1973. I need to know whether his name was on the orginal will.

Ok, if the decedent re-wrote the will, then the old will wouldn't have been valid any longer. The first thing a new will does is revoke the old one so that there is only one valid will in existence at any given time.
.
So if the 1999 will was the latest will, then it would be the only legal will and would dispose of any property of the testator. If father wasn't listed as as an heir, which would make sense since he was deceased, then his estate wouldn't stand to inherit anything.
