"This project went great! We searched for other companies to do this and found that they were very reasonably priced. They charged $250.00 retainer and then we purchased" hours after that. We felt in control of how much we were spending. We gave them the information we had, and they fleshed out a beautiful family history for us with pictures, documents and stories about what their life would have been like during the time they lived. They both came over during the " Famine Years" but my family is from the northern part of
and my wife from the south. We had very different experiences. The narratives were written like a history lesson but in an entertaining fashion. We enjoy our book very much. We plan to hire them again to
for a lost German ancestor.

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.

The info. was so complete, I was amazed. Printed, at my request and mailed to me.She was warm an friendly. It sounded like she was having as much fun as I was. Her print out was in a note book with each sheet encased in a plastic sleeve, very professional. I would highly recommend her.

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

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

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,
Washington DC 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
Washington DC 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
Washington DC 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.
