Probate & Estate Research Heir Search Solutions Forensic Genealogy

American Research Bureau (ARB) is one of the oldest and best-known probate research and heir location firms in the United States of America. We identify and locate missing heirs and beneficiaries to unclaimed estates worldwide. When we contact someone, we believe they may be legally entitled to an unclaimed inheritance we have identified.

We specialize in probate research investigation, heir location, kinship determination and inheritance recovery. Our team of forensic genealogists, probate researchers and document specialists have extensive knowledge of intestate succession laws to identify and locate missing heirs or find unknown heirs who are unaware of their potential inheritance. We prevent fraudulent inheritance claims by connecting legitimate heirs to unclaimed inheritance assets and proving their right to inherit.

We stand behind our heir locator services with a 100% risk-free guarantee.  If your claim isn’t successful you pay nothing. Our fees are paid only on a successful outcome when the estate distributes. If there is no recovery, there is no financial obligation.

We provide peace of mind to attorneys, estate administrators and personal representatives that need to locate missing heirs or beneficiaries to an unclaimed estate. We offer complimentary case evaluations and reliable heir locator services to identify potential heirs and ensure that every beneficiary is accounted for.
