Researching Genealogy since 2004


Recent Customer Feedback

"I would recommend Robert to anyone who finds that they have hit that infamous "brick wall". I struggled for a year and a half, trying to to find my roots. I hired a researcher who kept me hanging for four months, made every excuse in the book, never kept me informed, only to find out that he NEVER STARTED MY PROJECT. By a grace of God, I found Robert. He submitted a very detailed and professional proposal. He has kept me informed every step of the way. He recognizes that I am "technologically impaired" and he sends me updates on his progress routinely. Robert's rates are reasonable. He is persistent and verifies each and every find. While I have never met or spoken to Robert, I feel that we have bonded and that he has a genuine interest in helping me. Thank your Robert for helping me find old Henry!" Charlotte, California

"This was a great experience to work with Robert. He is extremely professional and worked very quickly to provide me with invaluable information about my family. Thanks so much!" Alice, New York

"Robert is wonderful to work with and I will be wanting him to do research for me in the future. He's patient, and helpful and professional in every way." Darla, Oklahoma

"Robert, I don’t know where to start to thank you for the work that you did for me so far! I am looking forward to starting the next step of looking into my past! I had no idea my Great Grandparents were born in Belgium! I knew my grandfather was Dutch, but nothing else. It means so much to me to connect the missing pieces of my ancestors. Where they were from, and maybe a little “daydreaming” of what their lives were like. You have made my day when you sent the report to me. I will recommend you to everyone to let you help them find their heritage! I am so excited that you have such knowledge to help others who are searching their past as well! I look forward to continue to work with you on my “journey into the past”.
Kindest Regards and Many, Many Thanks to you!"
Ann Marie, New York

Our Experience Shows!

After completing several family tree projects, I am now working on a complete merged family tree that brings together thousands of family members. The final project includes documenting all sources and publishing to a family website and administering the site for the family, including adding photos and administering users.

Why I Do, What I Do!

Excerpt from the Wayne County Indiana Genealogical Society's Family Pathways Newsletter, Volume XVII, No. 1, Spring 2007

We Are Chosen

We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to fell that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes.

Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us." How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that the fathers fought and some died to make and keep us a Nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us.

It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us birth, without them we could not exist, and so we love each one, as far back as we can reach. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do.

With love and caring and scribbling each fact of their existence, because we are they and they are the sum of who we are. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take my place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and restore the memory or greet those whom we had never known before.
