Good morning,

I do not know of an official title of "forensic genealogist".  It is more or
less an informal job description.  There are a number of people (including
myself) who are members of APG who work for attorneys and courts performing
the task of forensic genealogy.  This is primarily done to prove heirs to an
estate or to find the correct person or persons who can sign away the rights
to real estate, mineral or oil rights.

The work performed is done almost like any family genealogy but it just
takes a lot of knowledge of the reason behind the search.

I hope this gives you some idea and answer to your question.
