Rates & Services

 Are you looking for someone to assist you in putting together information on your ancestry or family tree? Are you wanting to know what illness, accident or natural cause your ancestors may have died from or where they are buried? Would you like to know which of our major historical events happened during their lifetime and how it affected them.

 I can help with your search. I am a researcher with interests in Genealogy, Cemeteries, and Old Medical information. I have been doing family history research for over 20 years for my own family and for the last 8 years for families not related to myself.
