I am a different Attorney. The Attorney that you were working with opted out of your question. I am sorry that no one contacted you when your aunt passed. Are you trying to find out if your Aunt had a will that you may have been named in as beneficiary?

i know she had a will and I knowi am in it so are my siblings miss hall told me bfore she had a stroke that we were basically the only ones in the will
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I may have a name on her lawyer
Lawyer: Attorney2, Attorney replied 1 year ago

The Will is required to filed in court or the siblings would have no legal authority to transfer assets. Have you checked with the county to see if the Will was filed? Let me provide the link for you.

Lawyer: Attorney2, Attorney replied 1 year ago

You can check with the court to see if it was filed. Under the law this was required http://www.nycourts.gov/courts/5jd/oneida/surrogate/probate.shtml
