If your parents have died and your sister has gone to court to ask that the Will be "probated,"  you can go down to the court in the county where they lived and take a look at it.   There will be a file under their name(s).  As an "heir at law" you would have to be notified of the proceeding and served with a copy of the Will.  You will also be given the opportunity to "contest" or file objections to the content if you do not agree with it.
