Probate is probably not an option after 21 years. If you are not an Heir, or there is an adverse occupant, then you may not own any interest at all. Hire a MS attorney to search the title and determine heirship. Hopefully a recorded Affidavit of Heirship will give you a source of title.
Hire a MS attorney to search the title and determine heirship. Then draft a deed from the other siblings over to you, with at least a proper derivation of title clause if not a recorded affidavit of heirship. Get them to execute deed, then record it.
