"My family and I are very pleased with the depth of the research results."
- Jim, South Carolina

"It was an exciting experience as I got all these glimpses of my family history, so I was quite confident my dad would enjoy the end result. And we were not disappointed. It was indeed the best gift we could have thought of, and it was all realized through Emily’s diligent and devoted research."

- Maurits, Netherlands

"I was so happy with the results I got from Visible Roots. I was truly at a dead end in one of my family lines and they filled in the missing pieces! The service was fast and simple to coordinate via email. Thanks again Visible Roots!"

Genealogical Research

At an hourly rate, I will conduct research into whatever you like (e.g. your family tree, your ancestors during the American Civil War, the history of a specific individual), then present you with a hard copy and/or a digital copy of my findings. If you've hit a stumbling block in your family 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.

Family Trees

Pedigrees, charts, and family tree prints make for a gift they'll never forget. Weddings, anniversaries and baby showers are all perfect occasions to give the gift of a family tree! Click the image at left for samples.
