Genealogical Services and Products

A free 1-hour initial consultation is included for all family history and genealogical research projects. The initial consultation helps us understand what you’re looking to find, general timelines, and the scope of the research effort. After the free consultation, we can begin the great discovery into your family’s history! Customers receive a standard family tree and pedigree chart back 5 generations. These are delivered in PDF format. Of course, we can continue going back in time to uncover more ancestors! High resolution photos and certain documents can be compiled and provided via DVD or other cloud storage solution. See below for specific products and pricing options.
