Finding Yesterdays

Heather Murphy,
Professional Genealogist

Family History Research

Researching your family on your own can be rewarding, but it can also take a large amount of time to learn what records are available, either digitally or in archives and libraries, what information records could provide, how to resolve conflicting information, and what records to pursue when more typical records don't provide the information you need.

What To Expect:

1. We discuss what you want to learn and create a research goal custom to your needs.

2.  You complete a contract and submit a retainer.

3.  I research with the intent to accomplish your research goal.  

4. The remaining payment is due when the report is complete.

5. You receive digital copies of a detailed report, research log, documents, and any other applicable files.
