Intermediate Family History Researcher
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
My parents were divorced when I was young and my family was very small. I always wondered about my background and off I went! I have gone back a fair bit but now I am also interested in where my distant cousins have ended up. I find it fascinating that I could be working with someone who could be a relative!

Our headquarters is in New York City, I work out of the operations center in King of Prussia, PA which is just outside of Philadelphia.
I am just in my initial research, the only other person I have found is possibly a cousin, Jolyon Hooley. I sent him a letter but was not able to find a phone number or email address for him.
The value of the asset after our fee is around $200,000. Half would be distributed to Rawdon's maternal heirs and half would be distributed to Rawdon's paternal heirs. I was lucky enough to find a family tree in ancestry for Constance's parents, Bessie Hooley and Thorburn Aylmore Stallard so I am starting my research with this side of the family. A random google search led me to your post on this website.
Legal Claimant Services is a division of Keane that specializes in locating accounts that are dormant or in need of attention and reuniting them with the original account owners’ proper legal claimant(s). We have uncovered such an account to which Rawdon Aylmore Conyers heirs are entitled to.
Through my research, I found that Rawdon's parents were Constance V Stallard Conyers and Geoffrey Frederick Conyers. Constance's parents were Bessie Hooley and Thorburn Aylmore Stallard. I am looking for descendants of Bessie and Thorburn's siblings who could be entitled to a portion of this asset. I believe that George Bosley Hooley's father was Edgar Purnell Hooley, brother of Bessie Hooley and his mother was Matilda Fanny Stallard, sister of Thorburn Aylmore Stallard.
Are you able to confirm the above and provide additional information on other possible heirs?

Hi Alexandra - When I called her, I said "Hi this is your cousin Jim." She said she never expected anyone to introduce themselves as her cousin. She also said that this whole experience is overwhelming. What part of Ontario are you in? When I lived in Virginia I used to go to Owen Sound alot. From there I would go down to Kitchner and St. Jacobs or over to Collingwood. Then up to Manitoulin Island and either to Soo Ste Marie or over to Renfrew before heading home. I love that area.

Hi Alexandra - I was in the chatroom reading profiles seeing who was working on who. I saw your reason starting to research - wondering where your distant cousins were and working with a relative. Well a couple of weeks ago I found a first cousin - my mom's sister's daughter who spent the last 87 years believing her mother and all her mother's relatives were deceased. I had been looking for her off and on for the last 40 years. I found her marriage certificate and traced her for 17 years in city directories and then she disappeared. They had lived in Harrisburg PA and then moved to Mechanicsburg PA about 20 miles away but not in the city directory. What is really weird is she attended the same church as my mom and her grandparents and never knew it. You never know what you might find.
