If you were named in the Will you would receive Notice in some form that the Will is being offered to the Court to approve and settle the Estate.  You did not mention ifyour Uncle had any children or who may have and the Will.  Go down to the Probate Court in the county where your Uncle lived and ask the clerks for help in looking it up.  If the Will was submitted to Court then you will be able to see a copy.
