The probate research world has emerged as a profession that provides a constant stream of good news stories. Welcome windfalls and reunification of families are regular events, whilst invaluable research and essential services support the legal world.  The UK Probate Research Awards aims to celebrate the achievements and skills of forensic genealogists, recognising the best of the best.

The Probies will return for 2021! More information to follow.
