Step Into Your Past

Do you know where you come from? Are you excited by your own unique heritage? Do you want to learn about specific ancestors or your own exotic book of life? You can choose to make powerful your ancestral past by learning about the men, women and children that have come before you and the times they came from that are a part of who you are now. The act of finding your ancestors, getting to know their lives, seeing the pattern and cycles of your family lineage from the perspective of time holds within it the discovery of what you can inherit from the study of your family pedigree.

Let’s Get Started

What does family research require ... What do I do that helps you discover more about your ancestral lineage? People may have no idea what to expect when they hire me to research their lineage. The work I do is concentrated on what you desire to learn about your family tree that you don't already know. But first, you need to tell me what you do know about your family history.

Is there a thread of truth running through your family's stories but no real record or research provided? When you contact me, you will receive the personalized care and service your family's heritage deserves.

Researching Ancestry Through a Camera Lens


As I research my ancestral lineage, I am reminded of how I use my camera to get the best photo shot.

Do I need to get closer to get inside (“you’re not close enough” as Robert Capa said) the details of my ancestor’s life?
