Unclaimed Assets

Media Interest

The reason for the general upsurge in interest in genealogy is of course two BBC television programmes. There is “Who Do You Think You Are” in which celebrities are helped to trace their ancestry. The other, is “Heirhunters” in which a London firm of genealogists are followed as they bounty hunt in competition with other genealogists attempting to trace relatives and prevent estates going to the crown. Heirline is delighted to take on such so called Ultimus Haeres cases, on a fee contingent on finding the beneficiaries. But a client approached by a bounty hunter has an option. Unless the sum involved turns out to be very small, Heirline can see if their deceased relative can be traced by us for less.
