PublicAdministrator.org is an access portal for information about how certain estates are probated in Massachusetts. If someone dies  in Massachusetts, or dies leaving property in Massachusetts,  without any known heirs in the Commonwealth, a Public Administrator may be necessary. This site provides direct access to officials appointed to provide services for people seeking to probate those estates. Here you can find answers to some frequently asked questions and other useful information to help get you started. If you have further questions or would like to bring an estate to the attention of a Public Administrator, you may talk to us live or contact us by email.
