Family Verification Service

Legally all heirs on intestacy are equally entitled. Finders FREE TRACING applies to all heir location situations when working with the Public Sector.

If you know of one or two potential heirs to an estate – we can verify their claim for you and trace all entitled kin, all FREE OF CHARGE.

We suggest that you are especially cautious in handing over assets, funds, keys to property etc. to persons claiming to be next of kin without first checking their ID and obtain documentary evidence of kinship. We can do this all for you, free of charge.

Research / Family Tree Verification Service


Finders are often asked to check research or family tree information prior to assets or funds being passed to a person claiming to be a family member and entitled relative

Finders verification of research and the family tree is a requirement before an application for a Missing Beneficiary Indemnity Insurance Policy from AVIVA prior to distribution of an Estate.

We have found errors or omissions in a large number of cases, an alarming problem which could lead to incorrect distribution or,transfer of funds or assets, indemnity insurance claims (assuming an insurer will agree to issue a policy) or even legal action being taken – not to mention the potential,for bad publicity.

Errors can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Reliance on a single family member for information.
  • Reliance on internet based information sources, which have errors in transcription in about 10% of all records.
  • Using an inexperienced researcher or genealogist, perhaps with limited research resources at their disposal.
