How We Do What We Do (For Those of You Who Don't Go Into Genealogy)

To put flesh on their bones and make them alive again, to tell the family story and feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

The Initial Consultation

We do it in a three-step process. First, our Initial Consultation is a free, no obligation discussion with you to learn what your needs and goals are, and then determine the best way to move forward to get you there. We’ll learn what information you already have, what steps you’ve already taken, any “brick walls” you have run into, and, most importantly, what you want to accomplish.

The Initial Assessment

From there we do an Initial Assessment. We take what you have given us and do some basic research. Here we may suggest, for example, focusing on certain family branches to pursue further, or maybe tracing your lineage back to a certain locale or time in place. We may have questions for you based on what you have supplied. Because every situation is unique, we work with you on an hourly basis. We provide you with an Initial Report and you can decide where to go from there.

Then things Really Get Going

The third stage is where the fun really begins! This is true genealogy, where we build out your family tree and transform the raw data into a meaningful report.

If you’re ready for your free, no obligation Initial Assessment, let’s get started!
