An attorney who does lots of heirship cases contacts you. He wants to build an ongoing relationship with a genealogist. He has a case with a possible 30-50 hours to untangle the heirs of a decedent from Texas who was domiciled in California when she died in 1972. The assets are in Texas. Decedent was not legally married. She had no children or siblings. Her parents were deceased. Her mother was also an only child. Some of those in the proposed line of descent and distribution died before the decedent, some died after, some died in a foreign country, some died in other US states.
