"We purchased this as a gift over 4 years ago, and found out that it had been renewing over the last 4 years. We sat on hold 3 different days over 3 hours each. We finally got it settled.

It went very well. She was very professional and thorough. She gave resources for all of the facts she found to verify them. She even included a couple of pictures I had never seen of my Great Grandparents.

We love it. They’re great resource. It’s a subscription. It’s a monthly fee and we have chosen one of their highest price packages because it gives us access to global databases like I can

property records in

. It’s expensive but they have cheap plans. It’s amazing what’s there. Other people are putting up their family trees. If they put their family tree public then you can

public family trees and just put your grandmother’s name in. Three other family trees come up with your grandmother and you’ll find

you never knew you had. Those family trees are significant. The information that’s there is what their family thinks is true. It’s not coming from some official. It’s fun to access but you have to look at it with caveat. There are thousands of databases that there are like social security death records or burial records. The reason that it cost money to join because they buy these databases. The third thing there is they have the

data. They have that going back to 1700 all the way through 1940, which is the last one that they could legally release. It’s a very interesting hobby. They have firepower to continue databases to what they have for you to

This provider was absolutely phenomenal. They usually don't do roofing projects this late in the year, but they accommodated our needs. He finished it just before a huge snow storm, which prevented our roof from collapsing. They were very professional in every aspect. They cleaned up behind themselves and didn't leave any mess at all. They were very quiet and even came in on Saturday and Sunday. I can’t say enough good things about them and I would recommend them to anybody.

I contacted

to

for my family since I am adopted and did not know where I came from. My searching reached a dead end when I had only a photograph from my dead father, of the father he never knew growing up. On just a name, and this photograph,
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
was able to give me a complete report, with names of additional relatives, obituaries, additional photographs and contact information for several family members.
Her work was thorough, concise and amazingly accurate. There were no loose ends, and she was genuinely happy for me when I contacted her to let her know that because of all her great work, I am now in reunion with a cousin who thought she had no more family!
She has a waiting list, so be prepared to have to get in line for these services, but if there is information you are looking for in your family tree, or a lost loved one you are hoping to contact, her work is magical! Worth every penny! I would have paid more because the information was so detailed and complex! My family tree has grown by leaps and bounds and it is all because of

I was simply AMAZED at
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
's thoroughness, care, and creativity. It well exceeded my expectations. She didn't just throw a lot of names & phone numbers at me, but truly engaged, giving me her thoughts and perspectives.
Doing this research was something I had thought of doing myself, but after looking at what she delivered, I now realize that:
- It would have taken me WAY longer (i.e., it would never have gotten done...)
- There's no way it would have been as comprehensive as what
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
produced. It was a very worthwhile investment.
- She's a pro! I have a feeling that she likes what she does, and in my experience, when someone likes what they do, they tend to do a good job.

Recently, I retained "
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
" for her services. I was absolutely amazed and stunned at the amount of information she compiled, in such a short period of time. The logic and methodical analysis she used, to research and compile the genealogical/investigative information (while cross checking the information for its completeness and accuracy), was astounding. The only thing more impressive, than the actual information itself, was the format in which she provided that information. It was provided in a report, so concise and clear, it made reading it a pleasure.
She quoted me prices and came in under that quote.
I would definitely not hesitate to use her services again.

Price has increased. AARP discount is offered but order takers on the telephone did everything possible to try to prevent applying it. It was accepted, "but just for one year!" DNA testing information is so nonspecific that guesses of degree of relation, I.e., 4th
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
, are left to the researchers to try to determine common lineage. No information is provided related to which specific
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
segments are shared in common. Also, no information is provided related to which
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
segments are related to the areas of the world, just the probability level. Also missing is about how long ago this probably occurred DNA test for genealogy purposes is probably the most disappointing aspect of the site's services. Military records in some cases are extra (Fold3). International records access is extra. Outside of Europe most other countries and areas have minimal resources. Newspaper archive access is extra in many cases. Database searches frequently lack specificity to eliminate many incorrect name and record returns and "
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
up" the supposed responses even when restrictions have been used, i.e., American searches return international names,pre 1600 restrictor provide names from the 20th century, etc., which results in having to sort through completely useless information. The ability to use expanded and more specific searches is provided, but seems to often not work correctly. As a library resource for searching - usually good. For linkage to other trees for collaboration - BEWARE! (Ancestry File is an often cited and unsupported source. The tendency to find children of 6 and 10 as parents is not uncommon. Inclusion of coats of arm that the individual never had right to are frequently found. The response when I have asked the question, "Can you tell me how you came to this deduction?" has resulted in responses like "you must take this more seriously than I do."). The marketing strategy seems to be to help the user to find quick success, whether the information is correct or not. Lots of aids are available. A commercial
Toms River Genealogists Provider Name Locked
service is available. In my opinion for what is offered the price is too high. Maybe I would rather pay a single price and have access to everything in all databases rather than being prompted to spend more to get what I need to answer my questions.
