    Inheritance of a distant Italian ancestor who died in Pennsylvania

      Sorry, I hope I'm not in the wrong place to ask this question. I'm writing from Italy. How do I find old documents about a distant ancestor of mine, Joseph Tambini, who died in January 1908 in Elk County, PA? When he died, the executor contacted the Italian Consulate in order to find heirs in Italy.  Among the documents in my possession is this letter, with the description of the inheritance, but I have no other documents related to his will, nor do we know who ever collected the inheritance. I would like to understand if the inheritance has ever been collected by anyone from Italy or from US. Using the FamilySearch index I've found: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L991-DJMP?i=351&wc=9PMF-16N%3A268494701%2C268501201&cc=1999196  where it is shown something about Joseph Tambine.  Also I've found these pages in the estate index:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L991-8YQ2?i=299&wc=9PMF-N3D%3A268494701%2C268512901&cc=1999196 and this one within the Dockets Index: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L991-DJMP?i=351&wc=9PMF-16N%3A268494701%2C268501201&cc=1999196  I would like to look into this and would like to see the documents listed in the table of contents. Within the FamilySearch site they are not there. Would someone be so kind as to suggest how to pursue this search? Thank you very much
