Family History & Probate Research Specialists
Welcome to Research RootsResearch Roots specialises in family history and probate research, providing a wide range of research and fact finding services to individuals, companies and organisations. Our business is ‘families’. Since every family’s story is different, no two projects are ever the same. We use specialist resources and expertise to bring into focus a variety of subjects and stories. With the support of a growing network of international researchers, we offer an integrated research service in many countries beyond the UK, with a particularly strong customer base in the United States.
We can help shed light on your family history whether you are just beginning to look into your ancestry, an experienced researcher with a particular puzzle to solve, or interested in commissioning a piece of original historical research, such as a serviceman’s record or a house history. We offer a variety of flexible family history research services designed to meet your needs, including beautifully presented gift packages and gift tokens. Our particular areas of expertise and interest include: Jewish genealogy, migrant experiences, Londoners and Sussex ancestors.
Our ability to research people in the past also makes us adept at searching for living people. As probate researchers, we locate heirs to estates of people who have died without leaving a will or known relatives, trace beneficiaries of wills, owners of land, shares and other assets. We work closely with legal professionals and other organisations to solve the problems of intestacy and missing persons, and can assist private clients with adoption and other cases.
We also offer consultancy and research support for authors, academics, film- and programme makers on a variety of factual and non-factual projects.
