    Hi Everyone! I'm new here and trying to learn about the items that were left with two estates that I am trying to clear. The 99 year old Pennsylvania home we moved into last March was bought through the estate of a friend of ours and so many items were left with it. I don't even know where to start. Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi Owl Lady. Just pick something out and start. Select the forum it belongs in like furniture or Pottery. Take pictures that will help you describe the piece. Email them to yourself as medium and be sure to select Insert all as full image at the top of your photos. You'll learn as you go. And welcome.

    Perhaps you should start with something big and bulky, instead of something small and fiddly, so you feel like you're making quick and meaningful progress. Something you keep bumping your shins against, for instance.
