No conversation? Search any places where they might have kept a will. There is no ?central directory.?

Look at their papers. If you cannot find one in the home it will be difficult to find unless you know who drafted it. If you cannot find one, it is presumed to not exist.

Start searching many and all places your parents may have stored their documents, and check with the lawyer who drafted the will if you know. I know of people storing their will in the garage or wood shed or attic or basement or bank or with a trusted friend or family member.

You have to search all their papers and where they might keep papers, such as safety deposit boxes, attorneys they used, etc.
