HeirSearch.com – A Division of International Genealogical Search Inc.

Many heir locator firms, otherwise known as “heir hunters,” use questionable, high-pressure tactics to obtain excessive percentage fees of inheritances. In order to protect their percentage fees, heir hunters may withhold the name of the deceased, and even the amount of the inheritance until the heir agrees to sign a contract. This means heirs are being asked to sign away a percentage of an unknown amount and heir hunter fees can sometimes be as much as 50% of the person’s inheritance. There is A Better Way.

Since 1967, at HeirSearch.com, we provide the legal and trust professions with forensic genealogy services A Better Way through our five-pillar approach that ensures reasonable, non-percentage based fees, authorized search services, a 97% success rate, documented court-ready reports and worldwide service. We welcome the opportunity to work with executors, administrators, trustees, fiduciaries, bank and trust officers, and their counsel.
