About us


We are the first European heir search company

Founded in 1894, our company now has 300 employees in 46 branches, including 12 worldwide (Spain, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg), and more than 60 international correspondents.

Our database, which is constantly growing, contains more than one billion pieces of digitised data.

We are members of the International Chamber of Professional Genealogists (C.I.G.P.) which is a member of Généalogistes de France.

Our company has taken out professional liability insurance and a financial guarantee for the representation of funds and we are ISO 9001 certified. It is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system and demonstrates our ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

In 2019, our company strengthened its base and development by opening its capital to CAPZA and Bpifrance, the latter being half owned by the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, and half by the French State.
