I have a few weeks to start settling the affairs/estate of my late grandfather before returning to my own home over 1,000 miles away. I'm not the executor--my father is--but he is not computer literate, lives 2 hours away, and has to care for my ailing mother. So I'm trying to get things rolling.
House is over 50 years old, has not been well cared for recently, and there's stuff EVERYWHERE--trash and treasure mixed together. There isn't much intrinsically valuable property, but lots of legal papers and a genealogical treasure trove of letters, photos, etc.--but all mixed in with absolute junk that no one would possibly want.
I can use any ideas, tips, tricks so that I can do as much good as possible while I'm here and make things easier for my dad, while helping to preserve family harmony among the heirs (it ain't as harmonious as it could be, and I don't want that to get any worse).
Thanks in advance,
