Bruce and I have worked together on numerous matters where research has been required in Australia or New Zealand, mainly in relation to tracing missing beneficiaries or legally entitled relatives in intestate estates. I know that I can send Bruce a request for research and he will respond within 24 hours with results of preliminary research or, on occasions, the actual information I am seeking. His fees are very competitive and the quality of his research is exemplary. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bruce as a researcher and am very pleased that we connected.

Bruce Garner of Lost Kin has just provided me with urgently-needed crucial documentation from abroad in just five days in an extraordinarily efficient, friendly and simple transaction. Lost Kin is a pared-down and effective operation who really know what they are doing. I have received a level of service and an end-result in record time, way beyond my expectations and was very impressed indeed

When a complete stranger sends an email to tell you your great grandfather has left a sum of money in a bank account, your first reaction is that it is a scam. I spent a very long time on the internet trying to find whether this was real, but Bruce's persistence in finding five generations of our family, including a cousin I hadn't seen for 50 years, was astonishing. With his connection in the UK, Celtic Research, we received money that had been left in a Swiss bank account for around 160 years. Thanks so much Bruce, for taking us on that incredible journey!

Bruce, I would like to thank you most sincerely for tracing Gail, a friend of mine from 40 years ago, when I lived in New Zealand. Not only were you extremely speedy in your response, but were very sensitive in handling the very sad news of her having passed away. I cannot thank you enough for your service, far surpassing anything that I had expected.

We had exhausted our efforts in trying to locate our relatives ... we have not had contact for over 40 years ... I cannot thank you enough ... I would highly recommend you to any further clients
I just want to thank you for being instrumental in finding my natural mother, after nearly 64 years' separation. I do congratulate you on your achievement.

In my observations of Bruce over the years, I confirm that he is honest and trustworthy and applies these attributes to both his personal and business life.

I have known Mr Bruce Garner for 16 years. [He] is a man of deep personal and professional integrity. In his business dealings he is meticulous, integral and professional. He is also the soul of discretion in all areas of his life, vital for a person in his line of work. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

I am based in the U.K. and this is the first time I have used a professional genealogist. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bruce. He replied promptly and courteously to all my questions and has provided an excellent service.

I contacted Bruce and his company in December of last year from England, to help me find a long lost friend. Four weeks later I’m glad to say they found her. I was kept well informed with the progress and the manner and professionalism was second to none. I would highly recommend Lost Kin Ltd to anyone.

Hi, I'm a mentor and tutor for a small group of kids in my local area. My class and I wanted to give you a shout and send you some virtual "high-fives" on your page, http://lostkin.co.nz/links. We enjoyed your genealogy resources and bookmarked them for our family tree project. :)
