The nature of family relationships are often complex as people become estranged, divisions occur and unknown family members unfold. These complications increase the need for genealogical research due to the fact that more missing beneficiaries need to be identified and more family trees must be reconstructed in order to identify rightful heirs. 

As a provider of genealogical research services, we often find that historical events can play a significant part in the make-up of a family and we often uncover the most fascinating family histories and circumstances.
