Why Us?

Unsurpassed, personalized research.

Genealogy is about two things: research and people. Your professional genealogist will have unsurpassed expertise with the genealogy research process, and is focused on providing personalized, individual service to each client. Your genealogist will work directly with you and closely under your direction to ensure that our work meets your specifications, every time.

Expert

Our professionals have deep training and experience in genealogical research. With years of experience working with records worldwide, we know what records are available and which will be most likely to yield results for any research question. Among other things, our genealogists have obtained college degrees in family history, guest lectured on genealogy at Harvard University, and received formal training in numerous specialized genealogy disciplines. Our many years of work, up-to-date genealogy education, and training in the newest research strategies and database information (including electronic searching and sourcing) means that you have the best of all worlds: the newest strategies with a deep understanding of even the oldest records. As the world becomes more interconnected, more information than ever is available for genealogy research, and we know how to use it on your behalf.

Personal

We use the latest techniques and global sources in your research, but when it comes to clients, we are strictly old fashioned—one on one. Unlike some genealogy companies that are large conglomerate report mills, we take a personalized, individual approach. You will have your own genealogist, who is a highly trained professional that loves genealogy, whom you can contact at any time. You will always know exactly who is performing all of your work, how the work is being done, what sources are being used, and what strategies are being pursued. This is our way of ensuring that our clients are taken care of, and that all of their needs are met beyond their expectations.

Sourced

Recent technological advances have made genealogical data and information more accessible and faster to work with than ever before. Unfortunately, much online information is unproven and unsourced, with no way to ascertain validity or correct errors or fraud, which can then replicate across the Internet. Reliable information can always be traced back to reliable sources, usually original documents and primary records, and should have copies of them for proof. Our clients never have this concern, because we follow all relevant professional guidelines to provide excellent research, in the best sources, that is fully cited and indexed. We provide scholarly research, written to be fully accessible to any reader and to comply with all professional standards for sourcing, footnoting, and indexing. Facts are always cited to their sources, and it is standard in our reports to append copies of all documents and sources containing relevant information that we use in the report. Whether you are a new genealogy enthusiast or have been researching your family for a lifetime, you will be able to understand our work and tie it all back to the best source material.
