Once the will has been filed in probate the file becomes a public record. You can visit the probate court and request the file. You can sit down and review its contents and make any copies you need. It is a good way for the interested parties to make certain the executor is performing their duties as executor. The inventory will show what property was owned at death. The final account should show the disposition of the property.
