Historical Research and Genealogy

Everyone has a story. It's time to discover yours.

 Has your history become mythologized to the point where you don't know what's true and what isn't? If we've not been good history-keepers from the beginning then it can be a struggle to get started. It can often seem too late, or worse, important items may be already lost. That’s when you need an expert. A historian can come in to research and document your history before it really is too late.

Families seeking to recover their history.

Families are complicated and genealogy can be a messy businesses. There's family lore, incomplete records, global events, and more that can impact your family's history. It's not uncommon for families to become fragmented with many losing connection to branches of the tree due to war, immigration, or other hardships.

Whether you're purposefully seeking to chronicle your family's history, or the responsibility of intestate has caught you by surprise, we can help you piece together your family lineage. Our team can quickly and accurately research primary sources to help you definitively lay our your family tree.

So, what’s your story? Are you looking for a long lost branch of family? Are you searching for records of you grandparents from Yugoslavia? Or, are you working with a lawyer to settle matters of intestate? Work with a credentialed historian and genealogist to locate the family records you need.
