Is it possible there were unpaid real estate taxes on the property?
In some states, the taxing authority can sell a tax sale certificate (usually at auction). The buyer acquires the right to, by following certain procedures, obtain title to your property. In other states the jurisdiction simply conducts a "tax sale" of the property.
You may have limited rights to redeem the property from the buyer of the tx certificate. You need to put a priority on looking into this, and may need a real estate attorney.
