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.

Our team provides Forensic Genealogical research for individual clients, law firms, attorneys, and probate companies to identify classes of potential heirs in probate cases, estate settlements, and other matters with legal implications. We research all Georgia counties. Clients are provided court-ready reports, family tree charts, and Affidavits of Due Diligence if required. We are available if needed for expert Disinterested Witness testimony. We maintain E & O liability.




We tackle complex problems and brick walls using specific and proven methodologies that can help resolve them. If you need help identifying that elusive ancestor or resolving "same-name" identity problems, email us.



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.

Ancestors are the glue than binds the present to the past. When we learn about our ancestors, we learn more about ourselves.

Reading and understanding old handwriting can be difficult. Sometimes it's a struggle to decipher words and their meaning. We can transcribe your documents and add time-period legal perspective if required.


Letter of Agreement

A formal Letter of Agreement is executed between The Genealogist and Client to be sure project goals and arrangements are fully understood by both parties. If DNA is used in the project, an Informed Consent agreement must also be signed by the client.


Our research fee is $130/hour + costs for all projects.


We recommend all client projects with brick walls utilize DNA.


A 20 hour minimum is required for most new projects. The retainer of $2600 is due in full prior to beginning a new project. If the goal is met or question answered prior to 20 hours, the remaining retainer will be returned.

All costs are billed when incurred and the invoice balance is due prior to receipt of final report. After the completion of the first project, an hourly fee reduction can be considered for future projects.
