It is legal in California.  My friend had made a will 40? years ago,
with a friend as the executor and beneficiary.  HE knew that I had
been verbally promised the Leicas.  But, the county seized the property, 
locking us out, until the will was found, and the beneficiary/executor 
died before it was found.

Although we had known the basic terms of the will, without having a copy 
as proof, they would not let us do any of the searching.

When Don Maslin died (before that, my will had bequeathed my collection of 
alien floppies to him!), his wife had no idea what anything was, nor where 
things were.
Some folk made some heroic efforts, and a lot of his collection of disk 
images were found, but not the original disk themselves.

Be careful with that Telyt!  If I knew which of several people had 
discarded the "obsolete" (not even digital!) cameras, I would dumpster 
them.  and then drop a few tons of Dells into the same skip.
