Heir Hunting and Estate Services

The world of probate and estates is complex. Vanacore International (VI) recognizes this fact and works with attorneys, government agencies, public administrators and guardians, trustees, private conservators and financial institutions to assist in virtually every aspect of an estate. While VI’s resources maximize the identification of estate assets, our ability to locate all heirs of an estate and work with professionals to streamline inheritance recoveries is unsurpassed.

As licensed private investigators, VI has the full benefit of access to records, as well as extensive in-house resources, proprietary databases, and networks of contacts. VI utilizes advanced search technology, census records, cemetery lists, vital records, passenger immigration lists, local telephone and city directories, and in some cases, creates a multi-generational family tree to untangle the often complex genealogical web that leads to the rightful owner of an unclaimed asset. We specialize in finding people. Our genealogists and investigators are respected experts in their fields.

Are There Any Fees?

  1. Contingency Fee- We contract directly with the heirs and beneficiaries of the estate and work on a contingency fee basis.
  2. Flat Fee or Hourly Rates- Agreed upon fee between VI and the attorney or fiduciary to locate heirs and beneficiaries.
