Once you become my client, I would need your name, the date and place of your birth - like you would tell your astrologer.

But then I'd also like, if you have it, the birth dates and location of your parents, and, if they are dead, the date and place of their death.  The more information you can give me, the more I can find.

And then I'm off and running...
Find the truth about yourself - your story.  It's out there waiting to be found.  How did your ancestors, individually, create a genetic line that leads to you?

The truth is out there - and I can find it for you.

If you have ever attempted genealogical research, you know how difficult it can be.

I can do it for you – I have the skills (including a Master’s degree in History from the University of London), the experience (having worked long and hard on my own family), and the enthusiasm.  I am a member of Ancestry.ca, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and the British Isles Family History Society of Ottawa.

I would love to take on your challenge.
