Our services

  • Missing heir location. We specialize in identifying and finding missing, unknown or lost heirs and beneficiaries to estates, trusts, assets and shares.
  • Document procurement. We can locate the documents (birth, adoption, marriage, civil partnership, divorce and death certificates) that you need to support a claim to heirship.
  • Family tree verification. We will check family histories to assess whether the information you have is accurate, and advise you if further research is necessary.
  • Tracing property ownership. We trace the current legal owners of unclaimed physical assets, such as buildings and land, and provide documentation in support of quiet and clear title actions.
  • Media consultancy. Our skills are honed in the exacting and competitive field of forensic genealogy. Our team’s expertise is unrivalled. As a result we regularly provide research support for media companies and programme makers. (For example, we work on the BBC’s showcase genealogy programme Who Do You Think You Are?) We also trace copyright holders for the publishing and music industry.
