UK People Finder traces entitled beneficiaries of those who have died without leaving a will. If there are no known living relatives, any property, possessions or money that is left by the deceased (their estate) passes to the Crown. UK People Finder’s extensive team of specialist probate researchers use their genealogy skills to establish the deceased’s family tree and identify living relatives whom they then contact to discuss in greater detail.

UKPF’s database has built up huge resources over the period since it started and has access to over 1/4 billion unique pieces of data. Using this data as the source our client wanted us to use data mining techniques on electoral, marriage, birth and death databases and develop a web based solution to help customers in performing family tree searches.
