    browser007: it is always a good idea when asking about legal issues to tell us where you are located - what country and/or state. Also to help with the answer please provide some further information:

    1. How long ago did your aunt pass away,
    2. how old were you at the time,
    3. did she leave any relatives other than her brother (your father, I assume), and
    4. do you happen to know who was the executor of her will (who hjandled the estate matters)?

    I live in the UK. She passed about 7 months ago. I was an adult... 36. I have an uncle but I don't know where he is and I don't know who was the executor. I only got on with her, so just spoke to her

    Contact the court in the area where your aunt lived and ask if there was a probate petition filed with respect to her estate. If she didn't leave any major assets (real estate, automobiles, financial accounts, etc.) I wouldn't be surpised if the next of kin simply took what they wanted; there would be no need to institute a formal probate proceeding. So your only chance would be to contact a solicitor in that area and get him/her to look into it for you.
