Depending on your request, I will perform any or all of the following:
For new clients with little or no family research work:
For clients with existing family research:
In both cases a database of collected materials can be provided that is compatible with Family Tree Maker 2017 under Windows 10. Purchase of the Family Tree Maker software is the clients responsibility. If requested I can provide a GEDCOM file for export to other family tree software. Generally, digital copies of most documents are provide as JPEG or PDF files. This work culminates in my major deliverable: a detailed family tree that puts you on the road to achieving both your long and short-term genealogical goals.
What you can expect from me as a Professional Genealogy Researcher:
I do not write family histories but can recommend several people who can do this work for your family using the genealogy research I can provide.
I also provide in person or virtual lectures on the following topics:
“They came by Sail and Steam” (immigration program)
“Beginning Your Family Genealogy”
“Finding Your Lost British Ancestors”
“Scottish Genealogy Beyond the Clans”
“Scotch-Irish, Who are They and How Do We Find Them?”
“A Professional Genealogist – Why When and How”
“Peter Robinson Settlement 1823 & 1825, A Canadian-British Experiment”
“Remember the Maine! Spanish American War Research”
“French and Indian War Research”
“Connecting the Points on Your Family Map”
“Introduction to Heraldry”
“Spider Brushers, Servants in the Manor House”
“Bring Out Your Dead, Plagues, Epidemics and Pandemics”
“Where are the Early Dead of Detroit”
"People of the Dust Bowl"
"The English Poor Laws and the Workhouses"
My approach in Lost Branches is that I leave no moss covered stone unturned when I take you on as a client.
