Researching your family tree is exciting! But sometimes it can be complex, confusing and time-consuming. Anyone can go on the Internet and with a few clicks produce a family tree. But the Internet is full of misinformation that may have been perpetuated through the generations. We have a highly skilled staff who have helped people like you with finding their ancestors and learning more about them. We use the clues provided by compiled sources, but we seek verification from the original documents.
Each genealogy research case is marvelously unique, depending on the place, time period, and availability of records. We have at our fingertips access to subscription websites for historical newspapers and obituaries, as well as printed county histories, court records, and microfilmed records. Through experience, we know where to look and what to ask for at various repositories of records.
It is very important you know exactly what you want us to accomplish in your project. Once you decide what you want to learn about your ancestors, we can evaluate your particular case and give you an idea of what sort of results you can reasonably expect. We will share with you our ideas for a plan of action, or an overview of our proposed genealogy research strategy.
We look forward to helping you find success in expanding your ancestry, and we relish the challenge.
This includes up to 6 generations on 1 family line (32 grandparents), 6 hours of research.
This report will serve as a foundation for more in-depth research. The research will focus on an analysis of records and online databases using sources available to rough out a family tree. This is a cost-effective way to get started. At project completion, you will receive a chart including:
· the dates and places of birth,
· the names of the parents,
· the dates and places of death, and
· the names of their children.
1. Up to 6 generations on 1 family line (32 grandparents)
2. Up to 6 generations on 2 family lines (64 grandparents)
Family history goes beyond merely filling out the names, dates and places on a chart. Your ancestors were real people with occupations, military service, accomplishments, servants in the community, and possibly more! We can pull from the records the less obvious details of their lives that “put flesh on the bones” of your ancestors. This report includes:
