You will be provided with a comprehensive and easy to understand report that will include copies of any documents and accompanying documentation found pertaining to your ancestors as well as negative results.

Multiple generation work will also include a Gedcom file or private online family tree in addition to the research report. You will receive everything electronically via email. Each research report will contain:

  • Objectives and goals - what the client hired us to find
  • Resources Reviewed - A list of all resources utilized for the project including negative findings

  • Evaluation of documents
  • Translation summaries of foreign language source records provided

Depending on what each client hires us to find, reports may also be accompanied by photographs, maps, graphs and more. I am located in the Chicago suburbs and also work with a researcher in Massachusetts. To learn about our competitive rates and areas of expertise Contact Me for a free assessment.
