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.

We conduct research in all Georgia counties 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.
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.
