Genealogy firm Finders International celebrated a triple win at the Probate Research Awards 2021.

Finders International took home the Probate Research Firm of the Year award for the third year running, and its staff were highly commended in a number of other categories. Amy Cox of Finders was also recognised as best probate research paralegal, while Amy Fabris won for best human interest story. Danny Curran, the firm’s founder (pictured), collected its awards.

The awards’ popularity demonstrates growing recognition for the probate research profession and the service it provides to local authorities and the wider legal industry.

Geoffrey Odds, company secretary of the International Association of Professional Probate Researchers and Genealogists (IAPPR) commented: ‘After years of being consigned to a fringe legal support service, it’s encouraging to watch how each year, this fascinating and helpful industry continues to grow in recognition, and thrive. As ever, it’s of utmost importance that as more people are attracted to work in this global industry, that integrity, trust and professionalism is maintained—and these awards recognise firms that excel in every area of upholding best standards.’
