Finders are often asked to check research or family tree information prior to an application for a Missing Beneficiary Indemnity Insurance Policy or distribution of an Estate.
We have found errors or omissions in around 50% of these cases, an alarming problem which could lead to indemnity insurance claims (assuming an insurer will agree to issue a policy) or even legal action being taken against the Estate Administrator.
Errors can occur for a number of reasons, including:
- Reliance on a family member for information.
- Reliance on internet based information sources, which have errors in transcription in about 10% of all records.
- Using an inexperienced researcher or genealogist, perhaps with limited research resources at their disposal.
