“I have always wanted to know more about my family but both my parents have passed, so I turned to Jessica for help. She did a fantastic job in researching my parents’ relatives and completing a beautiful book that I can pass on to my children. Wonderful working with her and receiving such a cherished heirloom for the next generation.” - Testimonial from Jeanie Cox - Harrison, Tennessee
