Family History Research
Over 40 years of experience in researching genealogical family history, land records, and probate and estate records ensures that you will be provided with the necessary expertise and professionalism to assist you in your search.
Even people who prefer to do their own research, will sometimes encounter a brick wall in their search that a professional may be able to assist in solving.
Think carefully about what the question is that you are looking to answer. Your ancestors lives are more than names and dates. They had real lives and real experiences and you may be able to find out some of the interesting things that they experienced in their lifetime.
This can become quite extensive if it is not narrowed down, so it is often best to start with a specific question about a specific person or family.
Always start with what you know. What have you been told and who told you the information or what is the source of your information? This will provide the researcher with a starting point that will likely save time and effort and ultimately money for the project.
Record the information you have and bring it to your consultation so you don't forget anything you may want to note in particular.
A professional genealogist will use this information to begin to 'know' the family, but will not waste your money researching information you already know.
Your initial consultation can be done in person, on the phone or via email. Initial consultations can take up to an hour and are not charged.
Research rates are charged at $45.00 per hour and include investigation into your research question and a formal written report. The report provided to you will include any information that was found related to your question and will note all sources researched.
Professional Genealogy Services can be paid for with PayPal. No payment is due prior to your initial consultation.
