We employ more accredited genealogists and legally qualified staff than any other UK probate research company. These members of staff are all governed by the strict rules of their accrediting or regulating body.
We are keen to hear from people who believe their transferable skills will enable them to enter the exciting world of probate genealogy and who possess the abilities and qualities that differentiate Anglia Research from ‘heir hunters’.
