Genealogy Research Projects:

The Process, How We Work, and What You Get

Genealogy Research Reports

Genealogy research projects begin once the client provides us with a detailed research request. Each request should include all known information about the family or individual you want researched. If you have any vital records, such as birth or death certificates, we ask that you share them with us. If you have a GEDCOM file or an online family tree (via or another website), we welcome you to share that with us, as well. An agreement will be made about the work to be done, and a contract will be in place before any money changes hands.

Upon the completion of all genealogy research projects, clients receive a detailed research report that documents all findings. Copies of vital records and other found historical documents will also be included with the research report. Payment in full must be received before any research results will be delivered to the client.

Working with The Ancestor Detector means that you, the client, will be working with a professional genealogist who abides by a rigid code of ethics, set forth by the Association of Professional Genealogists. We take pride in delivering factual and well-documented genealogy research projects to our clients.
