Services Offered

I will research your family line, in as much detail as you request.   I will provide photo copies of source records when possible and document all sources. This data will be presented to you in report format, and I will also provide printed "pedigree" charts of the clients direct lines. The client can limit the scope of the search in relation to time spent and biographical depth and additional surname lines developed.
