Welcome to Abel Associates

Abel Associates were established to assist the legal profession in tracing and locating missing or unknown beneficiaries. The majority of our work arises from intestate estates where the deceased person has died without leaving a will. In these cases we will trace the statutory next of kin of the deceased according to the Laws of Intestacy. Alternatively, we might work on the estate of a person who has died leaving a valid will but the whereabouts of the Executors, Trustees or beneficiaries may be unknown.

We are also able to assist private individuals with their own family history research and if requested locate long lost relatives, or friends.

Abel Associates assist the legal profession in tracing and locating missing beneficiaries.

Our experienced researchers have access to an extensive range of research resources including our in-house library containing the index to the General Register of births, marriages and deaths of England and Wales. Our research often stretches worldwide and our established contacts in record offices throughout the world ensure that there is no limit to our search capabilities.
