Lineages by Luana assists law offices, guardians, executors, investigators, and other private firms to locate missing and unknown heirs and next-of-kin. We follow the ethical standards of the field, and are contracted at an hourly rate, with no interest in the outcome of the case. Our work varies from a few hours to locate a single, missing heir to longer, complete kinship projects, involving multiple heirs at law.
- Expert research in databases and on-site, completed to genealogical standards
- Professionally written, source-cited genealogy research reports
- Exhibits: descendancy charts and images of documents that establish kinship
- Affidavits of kinship and due diligence
- Locating a missing heir
Reasons to Consult a Genealogist:
- If a list of family members seems incomplete, or you receive no list
- When a family is complex, or the decedent was unmarried and childless
- If there could be confusion over a common surname or if the family research includes research into other countries
- When you want to present an expert, documented report
- If you have doubt and don’t want to take a risk
All work is performed by Luana M. Darby, Accredited Genealogist®.
