Tracing Family, Next of Kin or Heirs FAQs

Do you do DNA tracing?

We do not undertake DNA tracing. However, we are experts in tracing and locating family members all over the world. Global Investigations can help trace long lost family members using very sparse or outdated information. If you have undertaken DNA testing with services such as Ancestry®, we may also be able to find an individual you have been linked to via these services.

Do you locate family or individuals abroad?

Absolutely! We have agents both in the UK and globally who will work tirelessly to locate individuals abroad. Global Investigations hold a prominent presence within the investigations sector abroad. Tracing and running complex investigations overseas requires professional expertise and specialist knowledge which in turn provides our clients with results they need.

Can you locate birth or death records in the Republic of Ireland?

Yes. Although the process differs slightly from the UK, we can access birth or death records in Ireland. We do require specific points of information to locate the record and in instances where our clients may not have this information, we can help by undertaking preliminary work to gather this for you.
