Description of Services
Family history research starts with a question. It could be a seemingly straightforward one: Who are my ancestors? Where did they come from? How did they get here? From that starting point, the first question can become many, each exploring the different branches of your family tree and the historical environment that influenced them . As a genealogist, my role is to help you focus your question and complete thorough research using accepted research standards and methods that result in a product that meets your needs. This product could be a report, a chart, a website, a video, or a book of stories for yourself or the younger members of your family.
Your question may not be about your family but more about the times they lived in or a key event in their lives. It could be about a home or piece of property they owned. Let me help you explore the possibilities.
