I am after some general advice here as I'm researching my family tree here in the UK and need to understand how the Trustees act is implemented. Some background; My great grandparents immigrated to Perth WA in the late 50's and the family still communicated regularly. My greatgrandfather wrote to my grandmother in mid 60's stating that they had brought a property and prepared a Will which stated my mother and aunt would receive some inheritance. He died in 1966 and was survived by my greatgrandmother but I found a reference to my greatgrandfather in the Government Gazette just after his death. The advert is a notice to creditors and claimants to come forward with particulars of their claims under section 63 of the Trustees Act 1962. My question is based on if the advertisement was placed because the Will was never executed or if it was common practice then to issue a notice to claimants in the area before the Will was executed. My greatgrandmother died 2 years later but seems to disappear until her death. I have requested her death certificate to see if it says where she may have resided. I assume the property and all my greatgrandfathers possessions would have been passed to my greatgrandmother which makes it even more puzzling why the notice in the gazette was required? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
