Family Trees

Have a full tree researched!

A family history book will typically include hundreds of people, and can usually get at least into the mid 1700’s (or even the 1500’s,  if records exist for your town.) Some projects have found as many as  1,000 ancestors!  Onsite research at churches is often available to supplement what can be done by civil records. Various  options for your interests or budget ! Documentation to support every name and date is provided, with the exception of any special circumstances.

Such a project is  comprehensive, including “everyone” by your surname that can be found for your tree.  This will usually need repeated sessions, depending on how large your family is, and how good record sources are for your ancestral town.  Drafts will be delivered quarterly throughout the year to let you see how your tree is growing.  Our spiral-bound family books are easily reproduced and perfect for gifts, reunions,  display, and to pass on to your descendants!

You can also order a “modified project”, still with supporting documention, family sheets and charts, but not so comprehensive. The research will be approached differently, so please inform if you ultimately plan to do a full book, but need to break it up into stages.  If you want “the works” ! “Cousins of cousins” ! This is the place

 We accept personal check, money order, & credit cards through PayPal.

For lineage research, please answer as many questions below as you can, and in detail. It affects where the research has to begin.  We’ll need to establish a solid starting point, verify facts, and be able to identify your ancestors in the records. If you have copies of any documents that directly pertain to the line to be researched, please send them as an email attachment, or give the exact name of an online tree if one exists.
