DNA &
GENETIC GENEALOGY

DNA analysis can be crucial to research projects that have a goal to identify unknown ancestors, biological parents, or to crumble brick walls. DNA analysis is complicated. It is imperative that conclusions are accurate. We can analyze your DNA results and use them to help resolve your research question.

GEORGIA & DEEP SOUTH RESEARCH

We conduct research in all Georgia counties and the deep south states for ancestors who resided here from statehood (1788)-20th century. Georgia research can be difficult for researchers unfamiliar with Georgia's genealogical challenges and how to overcome them.

PROJECT
MANAGEMENT

If your research includes multiple geographic areas we can manage your project. We locate Certified Genealogists who specialize in the areas your family resided and work with them to create a research plan and implement it. We work on your behalf beginning with the contract phase, ensure the research plan is followed, review the work, and incorporate the finished product with our own. We include you as little or as much as you desire.

Having us manage all areas of your research ensures that research for your project is conducted in an efficient and timely manner and removes obstacles that less experienced family genealogists might encounter when tackling a complicated and multi-faceted project.

FAMILY
NARRATIVES 

Our ancestors' stories are the glue that bind us to them. Let us help you discover their story and write a family narrative. We do the research, so your family story will be evidence-based and accurate. Your ancestors' lives are placed in a historical context, so you understand better why they made the decisions they made. We can better understand ourselves when we understand our ancestors' lives.

Letter of Agreement

Fees

Our research fee is $130/hour and includes DNA analysis. We recommend all client projects with brick walls utilize DNA. A 20 hour minimum is required for most new projects.

The fee of $2600 is due in full prior to beginning new projects. After the completion of the first project, an hourly fee reduction can be considered for future projects.

Consultations also require an executed Letter of Agreement and will be charged at the hourly rate.
