At DavisDNA & Family Research, we’re focused on making the genealogy process easier for our clients. Our heir locator services are tailored to your requirements to help you get the best possible results.

We do not accept contingency or percentage-based fees; we work exclusively on a reasonable hourly fee.  We will make a recommendation based on the specifics of a given case as to a proposed budget.  If the search is incomplete at the end of the initial hourly scope, an interim report will be provided, which will document the status of the search, and a decision will be made with our client as to the next steps.  We have successfully completed dozens of missing heir searches and offer a free consultation to evaluate your case.
