What are the Advantages of Hiring a Professional Genealogist?

Professional Genealogists are reliable, efficient, passionate. They are meticulous and thorough in their research. These genealogy experts adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and cite every source consulted during the genealogy research process. Professionals DO NOT promote unfounded claims, even if they are of popular opinion. Much of internet “genealogy” is not fact-based and is nothing more than folklore. To combat this, Professional Genealogists are committed to finding actual facts and evidence to prove familial relationships. They are the go-to experts in their field of genealogy.


Why Hire The Ancestor Detector to Research Your Genealogy?

Our genealogy company was founded and is run by a professional genealogist. We have years of research experience and have many satisfied clients. We also believe in offering a broad range of pricing options to allow more people the opportunity to learn about their ancestry.

The Ancestor Detector also provides several unique services. First, we spend time assessing each and every genealogy project before we agree to take on a client. While most genealogy research companies charge for all time spent on a project, we want to make sure that our clients will be happy at the end of the day. Of course there are no guarantees when it comes to genealogy research, but if we don’t think we can help you, we won’t take a penny of your money.

We also have a large network of contacts. If your project requires an unusual research specialty that we don’t feel we are able to address, we will put you in contact with another qualified researcher with the specialization that you require.

Another thing that sets The Ancestor Detector apart from other genealogy companies is our Family History Book compilation service. Some clients simply want an answer to a particular question about their family. Other clients want more than a simple research report. For these clients, we compile very large and elaborate Presentation Binders. Not only do these substantial family history books contain pedigree charts and genealogy research reports, they also include many pages of vital documents and historical records. Many of our books contain valuable information and consist of hundreds of pages! Each Presentation Binder is made with archival-safe materials, too. Made of acid-free materials, the book should last for many years without yellowing or deteriorating. These books have become so popular, that they have become one of our signature genealogy services. Because of their visual appeal, many clients opt to give our books as gifts to family members. (But don’t take our word for it, check out the Testimonials Section of this website to hear what our customers have to say in their own words.)
