My grandfather passed when i was 6 he left a trust for myself and siblings my grandmother passed a few years ago and i have no clue where to start? Please help
A starting point will be Surrogate's Court in the county in which each of your grandparents resided at death in order to see if there was an administration / probate of either estate. If there is any real estate held within the trust, you may also check the county clerk where the real estate is located because oftentimes a copy of the trust is filed with the deed transferring the property to the trust.See question
