The relevant law is ORS 113.075. You can contest the content the validity of the will or the probate itself (in Oregon, you do use probate). You have 4 months from "notice", which is either the general public notice in the local paper, or the mailing of the "Information to devisees" described under ORS 113.145. If you are named in the will, the later would be applicable to you: you are to get a notice including the title of the court where the matter is pending, the decedent's name, and so on. Under ORS 113.165, the personal representative is to file with the court an inventory of the decedent's property, within 30 days of appointment. Subsequently the PR is to file supplementary inventories when new property is discovered.
