Notes of Decisions

For probate court to have subject matter jurisdic­tion over out-of-state decedent’s will executed in Oregon, there must be prop­erty in this state upon which probate may operate, and promissory note secured by trust deed was per­sonal prop­erty having out-of-state situs, notwithstanding its physical presence in Oregon.
