This service is intended for law firms looking to hire a genealogist to locate the heir of an estate for a recently deceased client.  We understand the ethical and time sensitive implications related to forensic genealogy, and provide this service to ensure, above all else, that the property is delivered to its rightful next of kin.

Heir hunters provide a major ethical problem for forensic genealogy, as they seek a major percentage of the estate’s value as their payment.

Many forensic genealogists charge a minimum of anywhere between $160.00 and $200.00 per hour for probate research.

Rates for probate research are $100.00 per hour.
