What People Say About us

The following are a few comments from some of our thousands of satisfied clients. Additional testimonials are spread throughout this site.

Why Choose

We know where to look. Not all the records that are needed are in FamilySearch or Ancestry. In fact, over 85% of the records that are needed, are not yet online anywhere. Knowing where to look to find the desired record(s) is absolutely essential.
We know how to glean all the data possible from the records found. Once you find the desired record, it is essential to know how to properly analyze its contents completely so we can learn as much information as possible. This is a skill that takes time and experience to develop. It requires recognizing the clues and applying what is learned.
We know what to look for. Being in the correct location and searching in the best ways possible is only productive if you know what specifically to search for. Do you need a marriage record, birth record, or probate record?”
We work collaboratively with other genealogists and with subject matter experts. No single researcher can be an expert in all specialties and for all time periods. Depending on our ancestors and their specific situations, we need to leverage the multiple specialists in a variety of disciplines and time frames.
We know how to glean. It is not enough to simply be in the “correct” location, you must be able to know how and what to search for. Knowledge of advanced search techniques, is paramount to finding the records even when one is searching in the correct locations.
We know where else to look and can access those locations. As much as we would love to have all the records that we need in one location, that fact remains that most records are in multiple locations. Very few people have every significant event in their lives happen in the same city or even county. Our ancestors moved around, attending school, serving in the military, getting married, having children, dying, etc. For most people, we need to search multiple locations to find the records we need. Therefore, identifying the various locations and having researchers who reside in each of those locations, and who can be trusted to find the desired records is also essential.
We know how to put it all together to create quality deliverables, including sourced and detailed research reports. We provide the lowest price and highest quality — Guaranteed!. Get a lower quote from any reputable firm, provide us with that quote, and we will beat it. It’s no wonder why year after year clients consistently rate No. 1 in Customer Satisfaction.
