So......I don't usually post family\personal problems on forums, but I was just curious if anyone else has been in this similar situation.
Background: 400 acres has been in my family (Dukes family name) since the 1800's. My grandparents still have the contracts signed by Andrew Jackson. My Grandpa and his brother (my great uncle) each owned half. My great uncle passed and willed his half to his son who still farms with my grandpa. Soooo my Grandpa and his single nephew are the ones that own the land.
My dad was the only boy that my grandparents had and was the only child to help on the farm growing and still to this day when its time to harvest. He had me and my brother and we are the only "Dukes" grandsons. I am the only grandchild to ever help out on the farm, I am 28 and am the eldest grandkid.
The situation: My grandpa just got finished with the paperwork that says he is willing his half of the farm, equally, to my dad and his 3 sisters. I feel really strongly that the farm should stay in the Dukes name and that it should be either willed to my dad or put in a trust and dad able to buy the sisters shares. My dad feels the same way but is very non confrontational when it comes to family affairs. I want to do SOMETHING or say SOMETHING but I'm pretty sure its not my place.
Sooooo......my question is, am I just being selfish and just deal with it? Or should I step up and say something? Any advice would be awesome. If not...its cool too.
