Inherited a large bonsai plant today....now what?

I inherited a large bonsai tree today. It was left for weeks in a large house without water. I took pity on it and watered it somewhat a couple of weeks ago. Today I was given the tree. Now what? It must be a very old one as the trunk is very thick. It is still green and must be a fir type tree. I just don't know anything about how to care for this. I have other plants and haven't killed anything yet. Can anyone help a newbie on how to care for this tree. I know nothing about the history of it either. Thanks to anyone who helps!

Lyn,
Can you post a picture of the tree for us to see so we can know what it is and better advise you on how to care for it.

Lyn,

Please do post pictures. In the meantime, water the tree thoroughly if you have not already done so. By thoroughly I mean until all the soil is saturated and water runs from the drainage holes. We look forward to seeing your new tree.
