Family Tree Verification

Blanchards Offer A Comprehensive Family Tree Verification Service To The Legal Sector.

You may need to verify existing research if you are distributing an estate. As Genealogists and experts in the Law of Intestacy, we can offer you specialist advice on a family tree.

Errors on family trees can occur when you rely on a family member for information. Sometimes their true family history can be hidden from them, For example, in the case of illegitimacy. Errors can also occur when you are dependent on internet based genealogical sources. This is because approximately 10% of all online records have transcription mistakes.

We can overview an existing family tree along with any certificates you may have. We will thoroughly check for any gaps, mistakes or errors and provide a written report detailing any areas that require attention or further investigation.
