The Ancestor Detector can help with all aspects of ancestry research, including but not limited to:

  • Family Tree Creation: We can create you a brand new Family Tree from scratch, review and verify an existing Family Tree for accuracy, or expand upon and extend a Family Tree that has already been created.
  • Researching Immigrant Ancestors: Ancestry research can determine when your ancestors immigrated to the United States, at what port they arrived, and what ship they sailed on. Not only can we often locate photographs of passenger ships, but we can also locate the citizenship documents if your ancestor became a naturalized U.S. citizen.
  • International Research: We have performed Canadian, Mexican, English, Irish, Scottish, German, French, Swedish, and Italian research. If your research project requires a certain specialty or access to International records beyond our capabilities, we have relationships with a network of researchers with International research specialties who can help.
  • Research in Different Time Periods: Ancestry Research can be done in many different time periods, including Colonial America, the Revolutionary Period, Western Expansion, the Civil War Era, Reconstruction, the Great War/Jazz Age, the Depression Era, and the Modern Era.
  • Ethnic Research: We have experience researching various aspects of ethnic research, including African American Ancestry, Native American Ancestry, and Jewish Ancestry. We have had success in tracing African American clients to their slave roots and have successfully assisted clients in obtaining enrollment in Native American tribes.
  • Military Research: Military service records and pension application files can provide valuable information about your ancestor. We have experience researching Colonial Wars, the Revolutionary War, Indian Wars, the Mexican War, the Spanish-American War, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and other military conflicts.
