What we do

We are best known for tracing missing heirs and identifying lawful and entitled next of kin, having worked with lawyers, banks, trust companies, corporations, and state trustees since 1997. We support the legal profession and know that our research will form part of a serious legal process that reflects on your firm. Therefore, we will work efficiently and with the best interests of your company, the Administrators or Executors, and beneficiaries at all times. Reputation is critical in the probate world, and we will safeguard yours as closely as our own. When complex estates need to be dealt with, we have a proven track record of tracing beneficiaries overseas in numerous countries. We have permanent fully staffed offices in Dublin and Edinburgh too. Scottish and Irish records are held separately to the rest of the UK, and we pride ourselves on being a trusted local genealogy resource for our clients in Scotland and the Irish Republic. We are founder members of the International Association of Professional Probate Researchers www.iappr.org, which provides regulation and codes of conduct and a complaints procedure for a network of elite international companies only. The IAPPR is one of many respected and recognised organisations we have chosen to belong to or qualified as members of. In an unregulated industry, Finders International is a name to trust.
