Probate, Estates and Genealogy

Wills, Probate and Administration of Estates:

Your Will is a vitally important document and should be reviewed periodically to ensure that it accurately reflects your wishes in changing circumstances particularly changes to your marital or co-habitation status. We can advise on:

Genealogy Research:

We have more than 25 years experience in locating heirs in Ireland and the rest of the world for American Estates. We work in close co-operation with several American genealogy research firms.  

Regardless of whether the deceased person left a will or died intestate, we are able to establish their ancestors and then work forwards to locate living heirs. This is usually required because the deceased person is single, or widowed with no children.  Once grandparents, aunts and uncles are documented, it is possible to trace cousins and other living family members.  We have located heirs in Ireland, Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Europe.

We collect birth, baptism, marriage and death certificates.  We produce detailed genealogy reports and family tree charts. Where applicable, we arrange for documents and affidavits to be apostilled (authenticated) by the relevant authorities, so that they may be used in the appropriate American Court.

In addition to estate research, we assist in obtaining Irish Passports.  For example, a client was born in Australia and lived there for several years before returning to Ireland.  We enabled him to obtain a passport by providing documentation on the maternal side to prove he had an Irish grandmother.
