"Whether this is true in general is unclear, but in my personal
experience and research, in New York State, when a parent died and the

guardian of the child and those assets."
I wonder how common and widespread this is - my great-grandmother living
in what was Galicia and then Poland, was, in 1920, also named as
guardian of her minor children after the death of her husband.
