Genealogy research

50


50 per package - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 23, 2017

I will help you with online genealogy research! I will research one family group or assist with one genealogy brick wall. You'll get either a completed family group sheet, or a written report with avenues searched and recommendations for future research. I will provide full citations for all of my work.

One of my favourite things to do is to share someone's family history with them -- to find a newspaper article about their great-grandfather, or to find the birthplace of their great-great-grandmother, or to connect them with a famous or infamous ancestor. I know that finding out about my own family history really opened up my world and helped me to learn about many different cultures in a variety of times and places. I can't wait to pass along this gift to more people!

Training & Qualifications


I have many years of experience doing genealogical research for myself, friends, and paid clients. I've supplemented my experience with courses on British genealogy.

I specialize in French Canadian research, British Columbian research, Scottish records, and pre-1840 British records.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
