Are you an estate practitioner searching for a missing or unknown estate or real estate heir? PeopleSearch can help via due diligence and kinship determination by compiling all the necessary genealogical data in order to establish a relationship to the decedent. The principal of PeopleSearch has 20 years of experience in genealogical research.
So, What is Forensic Genealogy?
In short, it is the research, analysis, and reporting done in cases with legal implications. Creative resources outside of the realm of conventional genealogical research are used in the mining of this research gold. Some describe it as “the study of kinship and identity as it pertains to the law,” however I believe professional genealogist Megan Smolenyak’s term “reverse genealogy” described it the best. In forensic cases you begin with the deceased and you look for the living, compared to conventional genealogy which starts with the living and looks for the deceased.
Unknown vs. Missing
Most estate practitioners will face the prospect of a missing or unknown estate or real estate heir case at least once in their careers. Many legal, ethical, and practical issues arise that should be dealt with promptly, efficiently, legally, and professionally.
A “missing heir” arises either (a) when a beneficiary specifically named in a will cannot be located, or (b) when an intestate heir’s existence and possible relationship are known, but the whereabouts of such heir is not known.
An “unknown heir” may arise where remaindermen in a will have predeceased the testator or testatrix, but more commonly occur in the case of intestacy.
