A: Your son could try contacting the banks, brokerage companies, etc where his accounts were held. To find out, he could look through your deceased husband's records, and could also examine the probate court conservatorship file. Perhaps the locations of the accounts were identified on one of the annual accountings. If this is all Greek to you, maybe it'd be best for you to call a lawyer who can help you.

As always, you get what you pay for. Be sure to talk to a qualified attorney about your specific situation before choosing to rely on information you get from internet discussion boards such as this one.

A: It does depend a little on the terms of the conservatorship. Worst case scenario is you file a petition to have the conservator replaced. That should be any easy sell given the existing conservator is deceased.
