Permissions issue with Sites migrated from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010

I have a SharePoint 2007 collection That I am an Administrator on but not a site collection administrator on. There are some sites that I do not have the ability to edit.  It appears that inheritance has been broken on several subsites.  This SharePoint 2007 collection has now been migrated to SharePoint 2010. I am the Farm Administrator on this SharePoint 2010 collection.  However, the sites that were previously inaccessible to me in SharePoint 2007 remain inaccessible to me.  I thought, that as a Farm Administrator, I should have access to all sites. Is there a way for me to gain access  to these subsites?  The access I need is the ability to edit the pages of the subsites.  

Note: Migration was done by Database Detach/Attach migration.

In Central Admin you will need to verify that your account has full control in the User Policy of the Web Application where the SC is located. After, you do that you will be able to view and edit all SC's.

I am in the Farm Administrator group.  The description of this group is:

'Members of this group have full access to all settings in the farm. They can also take ownership of any content site.'

When I view the group permissions for this group it shows as full control.
However, I don't have full control and I don't see any way to take ownership of sites that I don't have permissions to.  

What I did find out is that I am not a site Collection administrator on the SP 2010.  I am a Farm Administrator. This is most likely a solution. However, I thought that the Farm Administrator was above site collection administrator for permissions.  This does not appear to be the case.

Like JMayHair9195 says, go to Central Administration  / Manage Web Applications . Select the web application. Click on user policy and add your user with full control. Then you should have access.

Being a Farm Administrator means in short that you have enough control to grant yourself access to whatever content on the farm. It does NOT mean that you actually have access to everything. The only way to push that is through the policy settings of the web application or to make yourself site collection administrator.
