Today when I received the new listings for Cyndi's List there was a link to
a company called Fraser & Fraser an heir investigation company in England.
There was a 15 part series that ran on BBC that followed the researchers as
they found heirs of huge estates that have not been claimed. I have watched
the first episode online and I am absolutely amazed by this company and this
show. Have I been living under a rock? I can't believe I have not heard of
this before. They have to do a lot of genealogy research to find the heirs
and it is very fascinating.
Here is the link to the site and you can watch all 15 episodes, which I plan
to do over time. What a wonderful show to watch.
I wonder if anything like this happens in the U.S?
