regarding a 1970 loan

Is it possible to get a copy or verification of a loan that my widowed-mother got through the FHA back in 1969 or 1970? She got a loan of 14 to 15 thousand dollars to build her house after my father passed away. (1966) My mother passed away in 2015; my brother and I sold her house last year. For capital gains tax purposes, we need verification of how much the loan was back then. We found no paperwork about the loan in her things. Because I procrastinated collecting what we'd be needing at this tax time, I will be filing for extension if necessary. Getting this information will help us tremendously, and I appreciate anything, if possible, you can do. Sincerely, Donna J Tillery Manuel

Spouse Inheriting IRA

My husband died in June of this year (2017). When he died, he was 70 years and 8 months old at death. No RMDs have been taken. I plan to roll over the existing IRA from Fidelity to my individual IRA at another company. I am age 63. Since I am treating the IRA as my own, am I still required to take RMDs now or wait until I am age 70 1/2?
