Success Stories

Ray and Lizzie came to us through Bark. Ray was interested in tracing back his family history and finding out more about his direct ancestors. We were able to trace his ancestors back several generations and provide additional life details surrounding his ancestors. After we had worked on Ray’s family tree, Lizzie asked if we would be able to provide her with some assistance, as she had been adopted as a child. Although she was aware of her birth parents’ names, she was unaware of what had happened to them. Using DNA, we were able to distinguish between the various candidates and conclusively establish the identity of both parents – and indeed discovered that her mother was still alive and living in Arizona. Our work on Ray and Lizzie’s family has greatly increased the knowledge of their families and deepened their understanding of their own pasts and heritage.

Susan was referred to us by a friend and colleague who we met via a business networking organisation. She had been adopted at a young age. Around forty years ago, she successfully traced her birth mother, who sadly then passed away before Susan was able to make contact. However, Susan knew that she had a half-sibling. After some initial work, we discussed that she had a half-sister, Karin, born after her birth mother was married. We were then able to trace Karin to the other side of the world – Australia. Thanks to our efforts, Karin and Susan were able to make contact and met soon after, and are in constant contact to this day.

I learned from Family Wise that I was the beneficiary from the estate of a relative who died intestate. Although his estate was in the UK and I am in the US which made things a bit more complicated., Family Wise went out of their way to make getting the estate settled as easy for me as possible and although it took some years, they were diligent in keeping me up to date as to what was happening and ultimately securing the funds were sent to me. They are a very professional firm and I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone needing their types of services.

Peyton from Family Wise Limited was very helpful. My family is in the United States, so this process was strange to us. Peyton was patient with us and walked us through the process. Thank you so much for your professionalism.

Totally out of the blue I was contacted by Family Wise Limited that I had a distant relative that had died with an unclaimed estate. With a 120 year researched family tree thrown in and a cheque I received today, all I can say is well done Family Wise Limited, and thank you to the very pleasant staff.

Family Wise are a legitimate company and provide excellent service.
They were able to resolve the payment of a deceased relative’s funds to myself and family members for a reasonable admin fee.

Family Wise contacted us (we’re in Australia) last year about our brother. They were very professional and trustworthy. I do not hesitate in recommending them.

The service is excellent it was in regard to my late wife’s uncle Brian Christopher Smith, who just received a letter about the family’s history. My wife lost touch with a lot of her family on her mother’s side. Thank you for all your help.
