Our historians provide probate and estate research services worldwide. Kramer & Kollegen are your expert partners for genealogical and historic research. A team of historians investigate probate arrangements and estate-related matters.
Our global network of highly-motivated and qualified probate researchers traces and finds beneficiaries of inheritances and claims, many of whom are distant relatives and initially unknown due to extended separation, war, displacement, emigration or other reasons.
If an estate is not governed by a will, intestate succession generally applies. If no legitimate heirs can be found, even after a public announcement, the inheritance becomes state property after a court-mandated period of time.
However, legitimate heirs may still exist, who are simply unaware of their inheritance rights for a variety of reasons. That is where the often complicated, complex and time-consuming probate research work performed by our genealogical and historic institute, Kramer & Kollegen GmbH, comes in.
