If you feel overwhelmed trying to break through a genealogical brick wall, and feel as though you have used a hammer or a wrecking ball to break it down, getting nowhere with the problem, it is time to hire me. I have the experience and knowledge you need to go further with your genealogical research problems.

I will back up everything I find with original source documents that prove genealogical relationships.

My Services

For a limited time only: 50% off research in New Jersey, and Delaware!

Research Plan

I will analyze the documents you already have, looking for clues you may have missed. I will put these findings into a detailed report, which will include suggestions on what to research next based on the clues in the documents. This is perfect if you want to do the research yourself but don’t know where to begin.

3 – 5 records per hour

Narrative Report

For the chosen family line or ancestor, I will examine every record available for them, both what you already have and what I find in my research. I will combine this information with historical information to write a detailed narrative about the ancestors lives

billed every 100 hours

Research

I will examine the evidence you have pertaining to your research objective, then look for records about your ancestor which will help answer your research question. I will compile my findings in a detailed research report explaining the evidence I found. This is perfect if you’re stuck in your research and need a professional to tackle your brick wall.

10 – 80 hours

Record lookups at the Family History Library

I will find the microfilm or physical record only available at the FHL and make a copy of it.

About Me

I was introduced to genealogy through volunteering with FamilySearch as a young missionary in 2014. I took my newfound love of family history to college and earned an Associate degree of Applied Science in Family History Research from BYU-Idaho in 2018. I am currently pursuing an AG through ICAPGen, specializing in U.S. Mid-Atlantic.

Aside from researching, I am developing curricula to teach children genealogy. I am passionate about introducing genealogy to the younger generation, and hope that the children I teach develop a love for genealogy that they will carry with them throughout their lives.

I live in Orem, Utah with two roommates in a second-floor apartment. My hobbies include gardening on my balcony, cooking, knitting, crocheting, and reading.
