Probate & Estate Research ♦ Heir Locator Services ♦ Forensic Genealogy

American Research Bureau (ARB) is an international probate and estate research firm specializing in heir search solutions by finding and locating missing heirs or unknown heirs to unclaimed estates worldwide.  When we contact someone, we believe they may be legally entitled to a share of an unclaimed estate we have identified.

With over 80 years of experience in probate research investigation, locating missing heirs, and tracing intestate heirs, our team of forensic genealogists and probate researchers have extensive knowledge of investigative techniques, intestate succession laws, and expertise in locating missing heirs or unknown heirs who are unaware of their potential unexpected inheritance. Our work prevents fraudulent inheritance claims by connecting legitimate heirs to unclaimed inheritance assets.

We stand behind our heir locator services and probate investigation services with a 100% risk-free guarantee. There are no upfront fees or out of pocket expenses as our fees are paid only when you receive your missing inheritance.

We provide free case evaluations for trust and estate lawyers and estate administrators to meet their fiduciary responsibilities by locating and verifying rightful heirs, verifying legatees, and verifying beneficiaries to an estate.
