I typically advise clients to call the court clerks of the court that handles probate matters in the county or counties in which a decedent died or owned real property. These clerks are a great resource for learning whether a will has been offered for probate. If it has, you can order for review.
If the will has not been filed for probate in the relevant probate court, then you may have your work cut out for you with whomever was responsible for maintaining the decedent's important documents (i.e., her Will).
