Visible Roots


"There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his." - Helen Keller

Genealogical Research

At an hourly rate, I will research your family as far into the past as I am able and present you with both a hard copy and a digital copy of my findings. Or, a time frame may be specified. If you're only interested in, say, your family during the American Civil War, I will focus my research on that time period. If you've hit a stumbling block in your family ancestry or history, hire me! If I can't find a thread to follow within the first hour of research, I will contact you and you will not be charged. I specialize in the United States, with particular focus on the East Coast, but I have extensive experience researching Canadian and European lineages as well.

Visible Roots can:
  • Research a specific life event such as marriage, birth, death, immigration or census record
  • Research a specific person, a specific family line, a single branch, or every branch of a family
  • Help with society applications for organizations (such as Daughters/Sons of the American Revolution)   that require genealogical proof of relation for membership
  • Research the history of a military regiment
  • And more. Just ask!
