see, who pays the taxes, if there’s an address.
go to www.rootsweb.com and click on the social security death index. check for the deceased owner. Write out the birth and death date, where he died. Then go to your local vital statistics office (if he died in your state) and get the death certificate with the info you have. Some states allow you to buy it as a 3rd person, I don’t know aobut NC. I actually have talked the Alabama office into giving me the deatchertificate, by telling them that I have located aproperty in the d3eceased’s name and I’m just trying ot find the next of kin, who now own it. If I don’t know who they are, they will lose the property. They actually helped me, even though it’s against their rules. In Georgia I always paid $ 10 for the death certificate. It will show you the informant, who’s most of the time a relative.
