Genealogy can be an exciting but frustrating hobby – even 15 years in I still get goosebumps when I make a new discovery, but I also continue to hit brick walls that seem impossible to get past. It can be time-consuming – many records are not indexed and have to be looked at page by page – and sometimes the records no longer even exist. There are NO GUARANTEES in genealogy, so I can NOT offer refunds if no results are found, but I can guarantee to do my best and to at the very least leave you with some suggestions of alternative avenues to pursue.
Lastly, I specialize in genealogy research for the New York metro area, early colonial New England, and in German-American ancestry. I am most familiar with these areas of research but am by no means limited to them. I am happy to help you, regardless of the location of your family history.
