It’s worth looking for a probate case even if you think your ancestor didn’t have money. You can find relatives you didn’t know existed, a listing of property and furnishings, and bills from service providers. When you see a coroner’s signature on a death certificate, or have a newspaper account of an accident, obtain the inquest to open a fascinating window on the circumstances of the death.
