Default Genealogist

I've asked for a LOT of input on various things here so here goes. We are in the middle of an investigation and it's quite possible that we will need the services of a good genealogist as we are attempting to locate siblings of an individual who is deceased.

Reply here or PM me if you know of anyone please.

I don't know if this will help but Ancestory.com does DNA testing to see where in the world you are from. (Geographically speaking.)

Im on ancestry .com a lot . Its a great tool but it won't give you any info about anyone who is still living. So, if you are trying to locate these siblings and you believe that they are alive , it won't help you. You can decide what state is involved and go to a genealogical society in that state and ask them if they can help and what it would cost. That being said,I'm not sure that genealogy is the way to go; depending on the circumstances maybe a PI would be a better choice. Good luck

Are you trying to verify relation or are you trying to find people? Verifying relationship is easy, finding people through DNA isnt going to happen. Unlike on TV there is no all encompassing DNA database that you can throw a sample in and pop out a match. You need to samples to compare.

Do you know for sure there were siblings? What is the background? Lost siblings, given up for adaoption, trying to settle an estate? If youre trying to find them through court records something like ancestry.com or a good PI is the way to go. It aint cheap.

We have an individual who is deceased and has a significant amount of assets in her estate that we located. She also has a daughter whom we believe is deceased and we have an idea of a previous residence. She has 3 children of whom we believe to be still living and these are the heirs to a very significant portion of the identified estate. We are ultimately needing to locate the 3 surviving children who are now in their late 50's or mid 60's. For the record, we are PI's and this particular case has stumped us for months. It took us 7 months to locate a copy of a trust document and we pulled that one out of our ass ;-) We have access to some tremendous information which is basically where hundreds of LE agencies and collection agencies and PI's alike retrieve a lot of data from. In this case which is rare, very very little there. We have torn the courts inside out in 3 states.

We do not require any form of DNA check or verification.

I assume you know the birth names of the children and maybe the address(es) where they were born?

Mormon Church has excellent records and there is no charge to use them, unless they have to "order" a record from the archives that they don't have at the local church. Then I belive it's a slight shipping charge.

Have you considered genealogy boards and forums in the state and county of question? Sometimes on those forums, you find some folks looking for the same info as you.

Also, maybe a private investigator...expensive, but they are good at what they do.
