New plans to add more archived data to internet resources could further improve the outstanding service provided by probate genealogy.

Though probate genealogists are unrivaled specialists at interrogating existing records, the ability to search for missing heirs using more web based facilities, especially when tracing heirs overseas, will prove invaluable.

Documents and records that would otherwise have to be sourced using more traditional methods are increasingly being compiled in to searchable databases offering greater research potential for genealogists searching for missing heirs.

The success rate of today’s most well-known probate genealogists is testament to their committed approach and unique resourcefulness, often needing to piece together fragments of information in order to reach their goal. It is no surprise therefore, that when faced with the task of searching for missing heirs and unknown beneficiaries of wills, solicitors instinctively turn to probate genealogists for their renowned expertise.

Finders offers probate genealogy research services for finding heirs and locating unknown beneficiaries. With research tailored to meet client timescales, international searches, missing wills services and clearly presented documentation, Finders has a distinguished success rate that sees them at the cutting edge of premier global probate genealogy services.
