Research Services

Have you taken a DNA test and not sure where to begin? Do you find some family history websites too difficult to search? Do you just want to talk with another genealogist about your research plan?

I would like to help. Using the email icon below, tell me about your research problem, and we can discuss the research strategy that best fits your need. If I can briefly answer your question, I will do so. If it requires a more lengthy response or you wish to use my services to address a specific research project, we can discuss whether a coaching session or a research project best fits your needs.

Words can not fully communicate how grateful I am that Rick is providing this service. His expertise in analyzing DNA results and traditional records helped us uncover a family mystery that I had thought was completely out of reach. It was clear that he shared our joy and excitement in discovering new family connections.
