Dear client you have not stated Wetherby the family is a Hindu undivided family or a Muslim family.
If family is the Hindu undivided family (HUF) Then a widow (daughter in Law has equal share in the ancestral property.
As far as daughters are also a coparcener of the property even then the widow (daughter in law) will have the same share in the property of father in law.
