Bona Vacantia - is there an Irish listing like this?
« on: Friday 22 June 07 12:32 BST (UK) »
I am enjoying the program about Heirs on BBC1 in the mornings at 9.15 ... in it they mention the UK government publish a listing each week listing the estates that have been left unclaimed (the deceased did not make a will - see:  http://www.bonavacantia.gov.uk/forms/estate_search.asp)

I was wondering if anyone knows if Ireland have such a list online?..   Thank you..... :)

Hi KDQ

Not quite the same as Bonavacantia. http://www.unclaimed-money-search.com/unclaimedmoney.htm

Here you can download a program called web seek pro. It says a free edition is available. From here you can then access certain webs containing relevant information.

Have fun

Hi KDG

According to the site it's ww. Ireland falls under the UK. I haven't personally used the site. I just went searching when I saw your thread. Might go and have a more detailed look now and if I discover any new info, I'll get back to you.

Hi again

I see what you mean by usa/candian. It advertises ww but the free edition download is a demo only and you can only access Georgia with it. It's $20:00 for the actual download ( one time cost ) It claims access to Ireland ( UK ). Not sure if it's worth the risk. Found nothing else like bona while googling, only sites where you pay for someone to look. Not much help I'm afraid. Someone else may have seen something similiar to what your looking for.

Good luck
