Check with whatever Court handles Probate jurisdiction in WY. Start with the County he died in, then possibly a County he owned real property. Ask was there a Probate for your Father? If so, read the File. If no Probate, then no Will has been Probated. Check the Land Records in whatever... Read more »

Your question is unclear. If there is only one tract, then apparently the alleged owner is actually only a tenant in common and the Probate will need to be closed prior to sale.
