You have helped me solve a lifelong search and thanks to you I’m now in contact with my Dad’s biological Mother. Thank you so much!

Danielle, Kent

I am amazed that you found me after I moved abroad and I’m so grateful for the inheritance that I would have not know otherwise about.

Robert, Perth, Australia

Blanchards could be considered a public service really as we'd never known otherwise about a first cousin's estate. The company's charges are reasonable and the people there very pleasant to deal with.
My family's thanks to all the team

John Kenny

Thank you very much for your diligent research and prompt payout too. You are providing a valuable service.

Helen, Cheshire

A big thank you from my brother and I for all of your hard work. It was an unexpected surprise and we are delighted with the result.

June, Devon

This has been an interesting journey in regards to our family tree. We are so grateful for all your team’s effort in bringing this to a conclusion.

Mrs Booth, Yorkshire

The whole service, tracking me down in a different country, guiding me through all the legal formalities, the care and patience shown, the professionalism in taking care of all liabilities, liaising with my own accountants, solicitors in what was a very stressful period in my life.

Brian, Canada

Once again, thank you very much. My family and I are very happy with the service and communication throughout this lengthy case.

Molly, Bedfordshire

The prompt responses from a dedicated named person to oversee everything. Because of Covid, delays were inevitable obtaining probate etc and it took around 18 from the start and payment. I am in awe of how efficient the service has been.

We are Heir Hunters

We are Blanchards, a team of dedicated Probate Researchers (Heir Hunters) specialising in professional Genealogy and Beneficiary Tracing. Using our expert knowledge, we have traced thousands of missing heirs around the world and united them with their lost inheritance.

What is Heir Hunting?

You may have heard of the term from the BBC programme ‘Heir Hunters’. ‘Heir Hunting’ refers to tracing Beneficiaries who would be entitled to an estate. This is carried out when the Intestate (the deceased) did not write a Will. In addition, the family could not be located to claim said estate.  In most cases the Beneficiary will not know the Intestate, being a distant relative. It is our duty to locate the Beneficiaries, inform them of the estate and begin the process of transferring it. You could call us Heir Hunters.

What makes us expert Heir Hunters?

Our expert team of genealogists can solve cases across the globe, including Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, South Africa, the USA, Canada, Jamaica, Thailand, the Philippines, and many more. We are constantly renewing our research techniques and believe that our modern methods, coupled with traditional techniques, make our ability to trace anyone almost unparalleled. We have been Heir Hunters for over a decade and have worked on every case imaginable. No job is too big or small.
