At Blanchards, we specialise in Genealogy, Probate Research and Beneficiary tracing, which is more commonly known as ‘Heir Hunting’.

We have a team of dedicated researchers, based in the South East of England, who together have traced thousands of missing heirs around the world, as well as tracking down lost documents and asset, estate distribution and many probate services available to both the legal and public sectors.

Tracing heirs is our forte; our task is to establish bloodline connections to the deceased using genealogy and thereafter to trace the beneficiaries using open source research, various databases and an array of resources, some unavailable to the general public.
